Want to Know God? Look at Jesus! Hebrews 1
From my reading in Hebrews 1 in the One Year Bible New Testament.
The writer of Hebrews explains that knowing Jesus is the greatest way to know God!
Jesus is clearest revelation of God.
“Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son.” Hebrews 1:1–2a
God spoke through the prophets, but most clearly and finally spoke through Jesus. In his book “Taking God at His Word” Kevin DeYoung writes,“God has spoken by his Son, and this Son is superior to all persons, heavenly beings, institutions, rituals, and previous means of revelation and redemption… Scripture is enough because the work of Christ is enough. They stand or fall together.”
Jesus shows us exactly what God is like.
“The Son reflects the glory of God and shows exactly what God is like.” Hebrews 1:3a
When you look at Jesus you see God. He shows us God’s glory. The awesome thing about Jesus is that he shows us who God is in a way that we can understand.
He became a person yet still retained his Godhood. Jesus perfectly embodied the very essence and character of God.
In a very real sense if you want to know what God is like just look at Jesus.
