In chapter 12 of John’s gospel, the disciple whom Jesus loved, recognises the significance of Jesus’ response to the desire of Greek proselytes to see him. Jesus has performed amazing miracles, climaxing in the raising of Lazarus from the dead but it is the cross [his atoning death] that Jesus wants those who seek him to see. “Greater love has no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
