#4- The Invisibility of God: The Answer.

The message of the New Testament (and of John’s Gospel in a special way) is this. V18, again:

No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made him known.

The old translations say that Jesus is "in the bosom of the Father".

Jesus is the one has made the unknown known. This God – and he is talking about Jesus – has made the unseen seen. He has literally exegeted the Father – opened God up for us. He has made him known. If you want to know God, the Apostle is saying here and elsewhere, he is known in Jesus.

I know that this is not satisfying to many, but that is the answer the Scriptures has for us: JESUS is the answer to the question of the Invisibility of God.

So let's explore this then...

More to come...
