Q: Is John 6:40 referring to a “seeing in faith”? Or some type of perception given to us since Jesus is invisible to us?
“For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”” John 6:40 NASB1995
Just as Christ is referenced to be unseen by us:
“so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ; and though you have not seen Him, you love Him, and though you do not see Him now, but believe in Him, you greatly rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,” 1 Peter 1:7-8
The NKJV says:
“And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.”” John 6:40 NKJV
So do we “see” Him in one sense, but not in another sense?
