Know the way!

(NRSV)
5 Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Isn’t this the question that we should be asking ourselves? The story is not complete because we know that a place is being prepared, is it? Jesus of course tells the disciples that he is the way, truth, and life, but did they hear him? Did you? Then Philip says, (NRSV)
8 Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” 9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
So I think it is fair to say that the disciples were struggling with the concept that Jesus was all the things that we search for. Sometimes it is difficult to see the forest for the trees. Why do we have to acknowledge this at this point of the passage? Because it becomes obvious to those who gain salvation that Jesus is Lord, but to those who have not gained this salvation it continues to be a blind spot in their lives. This blind spot must be removed from the lives of those who want to go on to where Ronald is going.
