“Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father” (v9). As radical as it sounded, Jesus declared that the full glory, love, holiness, and power of the Father was revealed in the Son, walking around on earth in human form. Even his closest followers struggled to believe this, like Philip: “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us” (v8). But Jesus was showing them the Father, daily, through miracles and teaching (v11), revealing God’s awesome love for broken men and women.
“From now on you do know Him and have seen Him” (v7). We don’t have to wonder what the Creator is like; Jesus has revealed God’s character in full, living detail, and we know Him.
