Nobody knows the Father except the Son

This morning I was reading the Gospel and looking at the verse "nobody knows the Father except the Son, and to he whom the Son whish to reveal Him".

Yesterday, in the office of readings, we heard St. Paul telling us that "it was God's wisdom that human wisdom should not know God".

That is an interesting verse to ponder, especially for somebody doing Philosophy. Buy it seems to me that the two verses together reveal a bit of God's plan, of God's mistery.

God is not looking for people having knowledge of Him, but is looking for the people themselves. It is not the mind but the heart primarily which God is searching out. (while I am not trying to say there is no place for reason)

It is through Jesus Christ that we come to God, He is the way the truth and the light. So in this Advent season it is a time to recomit ourself to seeking the face of Jesus... so that we too are blessed by seeing what we see, as generation were seeking it but did not find it...

I like this thought a lot, Luuk. This is especially interesting for a Protestant who grew up merging salvation and understanding much too closely.
