John 14:9 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "Jesus saith unto him," (legei auto ho lesous) "Jesus responded to him directly," because Philip seemed to have a longing or craving to see the Father.

2) "Have I been so long time with you," (tousoton chronon meth' humon eimi) "Am I so long a time with you," existing with and near you, for an extended period of continuing time. How much longer has He been with you and me personally, through the clearer revelation and

help of the Holy Spirit? And in and through His church, as He promised, Mat 28:20; Joh 14:16-17.

3) "And yet hast thou not known me, Philip?" (kai ouk egnokas me Philippe) "And you have not known me, Philip?" This appears to be a matter of regret to Jesus, after having taught Philip for so long a time; And yet he did not seem to understand that Jesus was the Son of God, or that to have seen and accepted Him, was to have seen and received His heavenly Father.

4) "He that hath seen me hath seen the father;” (ho heorakos eme heoraken ton patera) "The one who has seen me has seen the Father," for the godhead dwelt in Him bodily, Col 1:15; Col 2:9. This is another clear statement of His oneness and unity with the Father.

5) "And how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?" (pos su legeis deikson hemin ton patera) "Just how do you say or can you say, show us the Father?'' since I am His express image, through which He shines in you, Heb 1:3; 2Co 4:4.
