Who the Father is, no one knows but the Son, and he to whom the Son is willing to reveal him.—Luke 10:22.
Jesus revealed the Father to his disciples by means of his conduct. So when Philip asked Jesus: “Show us the Father,” Jesus could rightly say: “He that has seen me has seen the Father also.” (John 14:8, 9) When a leper begged Jesus to cure him, Jesus touched the man who was “full of leprosy” and told him: “I want to. Be made clean.” Upon being cured, the leper no doubt could see Jehovah’s hand in what Jesus did. (Luke 5:12, 13) Also, at the time of Lazarus’ death, the disciples must have felt the Father’s compassion when Jesus “groaned in the spirit and became troubled” and “gave way to tears.” Though Jesus knew that he was going to resurrect Lazarus, he felt the pain that was evident among Lazarus’ family and friends.—John 11:32-35, 40-43. w12 4/15 1:10Memorial Bible reading: (Daytime events: Nisan 9) John 12:12-19; Mark 11:1-11
