Philip: The Apostle with the Wrong Answers

In John’s gospel, we get an insight into the disciple Philip that we don’t see as much elsewhere. The passages that provide us something more than just his name indicate that whenever he was in a position to be tested by or about Jesus, Philip never knew the correct answer. Yet, Jesus did not rebuke him for it. Philip demonstrated a good attitude throughout the gospels, and if he didn’t know an answer, he at least knew how to ask others for help, whether of Jesus or one of the other disciples.
