January 26 – John 14:7-15
Some has called Philip’s words here careless and thoughtless: “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us” (14:8). Jesus’ response revealed the Lord’s frustration: “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know me, Philip? He who has seen me, has seen the Father; how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” (14:9).
One might think, by this time, Philip would have understood who Jesus was and what he came to do. Apparently he had much still to learn.
