Study Jesus

“No one has ever seen God,” John reminds us (John 1:18).   Isn’t that what God said in Exodus 33?   “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live” (Exo 33:20).

Now John adds an exception: “But the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known” (John 1:18).

Do you hear what this text is saying?   Do you want to know what God looks like?   Look at Jesus.

“No one has ever seen God,” and God in all of his transcendent splendor we still cannot see until the last day.   But the Word became flesh; God became a human being with the name of Jesus; and we can see him…

  • Do you want to know what the character of God is like?   Study Jesus.
  • Do you want to know what the holiness of God is like?   Study Jesus.
  • Do you want to know what the wrath of God is like?   Study Jesus.
  • Do you want to know what the forgiveness of God is like?   Study Jesus.
  • Do you want to know what the glory of God is like?   Study Jesus all the way to the wretched cross.

Study Jesus.
