Gazing Upon the Cross
Jesus is giving his final address to his followers, his last will and testament. Greeks arrive where Jesus and disciples are gathered, find Philip, and make an extraordinary request: "Sir, we wish to see Jesus." Philip, the disciple with the Greek name, a person whom Jesus had befriended at the start of his earthly ministry (1:43), is the disciple who leads the Greeks toward Jesus. Jesus responds to their request. If you desire to see Jesus, then listen to what he says, and view him through the lens that he gives.
