"All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father.
Though you do not know him, I know him. If I said I did not, I would be a liar like you, but I do know him and obey his word.
"Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.
