No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son has made Him known

Posted by admin on 29 November 2020 in 1 John, Exodus, John |

See John 1:18.

18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in the closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

I. No one has ever seen God (18a)

Moses closely encountered God, but was not allowed to see His face, but only His back (Exodus 33:18-34:8).

II. The One and Only Son has made Him known (18b)

They saw Jesus face to face. Moreover, Jesus left his face for us to see. His face has been imprinted on the shroud that covered his body laid down from the cross. This shroud is called the Shroud of Turin.

This amazing experience has been described again by John in 1 John 1:1-4.

1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We write this to make our joy complete.

The Word became flesh! This is most awesome and amazing miracle! Good News of Great Joy! Immanuel! God With Us! The Word has made Him known!!
