I find it intriguing that a mere carpenter from Nazareth had the audacity to say: “If you have seen me you have seen the Father.” Well, we know he wasn’t a mere carpenter. He was the Son. But, very few knew that, did they? No wonder he enraged his contemporaries by such an utterance. I am afraid times haven’t changed much. If a mere teacher from Norway should say the same thing there would be an uproar, wouldn’t it (Even though he has the same indwelling Spirit as the carpenter, and is a son too)? Isn’t this the foolishness of the gospel; that God makes His invisibility visible through carpenters, teachers and everyone else in whom He has made Himself a home?
