Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
then said Jesus, incredulous people, how long shall I be with you? must I be always assisting you? bring him before me.
if you had known me, you would likewise have known my father: and from henceforth you shall know him, nay, you have seen him.
and he that contemplates me, contemplates him that sent me.
he is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of the whole creation.
who tho' he was the image of God, did not affect to appear with divine majesty, but divested himself thereof,
who being the radiation of his glory, and the imprest image of his substance, and governing all things by his powerful command, after having himself made expiation for our sins, sat down on the right hand of the divine majesty in the highest heavens.
