#13- The Invisibility of God: From creation to Palestine to You

Where does this story end up? It ends up right here in this room - with you and me. In Jesus, there is an offer to each of us know the now-known God.

The story begins in creation, lands in Palestine, and then spreads to the world. But it could go one way or the other: acceptance or rejection of God. V10 --

He was in the world, and the world came into being through him; yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to what was his own (First Century Israel), and his own people did not accept him.

This, then, is the tragedy of the story of the Revelation of the Invisible God: The 'World' and even his own people (for Jesus was Jewish) did not accept him.

But the offer of being a part of the family is held out in him.

Two more to come...
