Jesus the Revelation of God
It is simple – and yet an eternal mystery.
God is the perfect God and Father.
He loves the world so much, that gave His only Son to die for the world, to save mankind.
He gave everything to His Son Jesus Christ and exalted Him to be equal with Himself. And “of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end . . .” (Isaiah 9:7).
Jesus is the revelation of God (John 1). He is the image of the invisible God. He is the fullness of the Godhead in bodily form (Colossians 1). He is the exact representation of God’s nature (Hebrews 1).
Jesus said, “All things have been delivered to/entrusted to Me by My Father” (Mathew 11:27).
Jesus said, “All things that the Father has are mine” (John 16:15a).
Jesus is the perfect Son. He gave Himself to the world to save mankind. He came to earth and suffered and died for the life of the world.
Jesus has given everything to His people, the church, the saints (John 17:22 & more).
When someone goes to God the Father, He points to Jesus, who said: “’I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’” (John 14:6).
Jesus also said: “. . . that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father” (John 5:23).
When someone goes to Jesus, He says, “’I and My Father are one’” (John 10:30).
And Jesus points to the Father and says, “My Father . . . is greater than all” and “My Father is greater than I” (John 10:29, John 14:28).
