As Jesus continues to explain to his disciples what is about ready to happen in the next few days, they are still confused in large part. Jesus is telling them these things not just so that they will understand fully now, but so they will believe when they occur. He says to them that they have seen Him up to this point for what He does. He then says they will see Him for who He is after the cross and resurrection. Ultimately, because of Jesus‘s sacrifice, we as followers of Christ are seen by the Father as one of His children in light of the salvation that has been provided for us.
