Question: 'In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the the beginning with God. All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.' John 1:1-5. 'And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.' John 1:14.

Answer: 1 Corinthians 8:6 says, 'For us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him.' And 1 Timothy 3:16 says, 'God was manifested in the flesh.' If there is one God, the Father, and this one God was manifested in the flesh, then it is obvious that the one who was manifested was the Father. Therefore, the flesh (the Man, Jesus of Nazareth) is described as 'the image of the invisible God [the Father]' (Colossians 1:15). This is why Jesus could say, 'He who has seen Me has seen the Father' (John 14:9). The only way to see the Father is by seeing His manifestation in the flesh.
