Revelation Through Jesus

Christians believe that Jesus is the incarnation of God, come to earth in human form. A living, breathing human being, but also God.

As such, they believe that through the person of Jesus - his teachings and example of how he treated people - they can gain a revelation of God. Through Jesus, they understand the nature of God; what he is like, and how he thinks. This helps them to live their lives in a way that is pleasing to God.

Hebrews 1:1-4 states:

'In the past God spoke to our ancestors many times and in many ways through the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us through his Son. He is the one through whom God created the universe, the one whom God has chosen to possess all things at the end. 

He reflects the brightness of God's glory and is the exact likeness of God's own being, sustaining the universe with his powerful word. After achieving forgiveness for the sins of all human beings, he sat down in heaven at the right side of God, the Supreme Power. The Son was made greater than the angels, just as the name that God gave him is greater than theirs.' 

This passage reflects this belief that, through studying the life and teachings of Jesus. Christians can know God better. Jesus' life reveals:

  • God's love for them is so vast, that he sent his Son to die for them. (John 3:16)
  • God cares for everyone and expects Christians to do the same.
  • God wants people to live in peace.
  • God wants Christians to care for the poor.
  • Forgiveness is very important to God.
  • God doesn't tolerate injustice, neither should Christians.
