If you know me, you will know my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.â€ Philip said to him, â€œLord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.â€ Jesus said to him, â€œHave I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, â€˜Show us the Fatherâ€™? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; but if you do not, then believe me because of the works themselves.
Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these, because I am going to the Father. I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If in my name you ask me for anything, I will do it.
