Oneness With The Father

Philip expressed a universal desire of humanity: to see God (Ex. 33:18). Philip was probably longing for a theophany (Ex. 24:9–10; Isa. 6:1) or some visible display of God’s glory. Jesus’ statement, Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father (12:45), is one of the most staggering claims He ever made. The Father is in Jesus and Jesus perfectly reveals Him (1:18).Therefore, no theophany was necessary, for by seeing Jesus they were seeing the Father!
