If you’ve seen me, you’ve seen the Father
John 14: 8

Reading: John 14 and John 5

Jesus taught his disciples to pray in his name, he claimed that he and the Father were one and that he was the Son of God. He claimed that to know him was to know God, to receive him was to receive God, to believe him was to believe in God and to honour him was to honour God, while to hate him was to hate God. 

And, as our Scripture for today states, to see him was to see the Father. This is what theologians call Jesus’ claim of perfect identification with God the Father. 

Are you constantly wondering what God is really like? Look no further than Jesus – for to see Jesus is to see God the Father.
