Jesus is the Truth

God has spoken to us. It is through His Son Jesus. God did not leave us in the dark. God has always spoken to us. Prior to Jesus, it was through the prophets. We can read what they had to say about when Jesus would come and the role of Jesus in redeeming us.

I ought to pay attention. This is important. Jesus is the true spokesperson (prophet). Jesus speaks the truth because Jesus is the TRUTH.

Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, he has spoken to us by his Son. God has appointed him heir of all things and made the universe through him. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact expression of his nature, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high. | Hebrews 1:1-3

Christian Standard Bible. (2017). (Heb 1:1–3). Nashville, TN: Holman Bible Publishers.

God speaks to us through His Son. Jesus is the true “Prophet” of God. “His majesty is set forth:

  • Absolutely by the very name “Son,” and by three glorious predicates, “whom He has appointed,” “made the universe,” “who sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;” thus His course is described from the beginning of all things till he reached the goal.
  • As the first born, He is heir of the universe, which He made. God created an office; and the universe so created was assigned to Jesus as a kingdom.
  • He is “heir of all things” by right of creation, and especially by right of redemption. The promise to Abraham that he should be heir of the world had its fulfilment, and will have it still more fully, in the Messiah.

Hebrews starts out with amazing insight. Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus spoke the universe into existence. God has put Jesus in charge as the rightful heir as Son. I get to hear Jesus.

I get to know the Son. I am redeemed by Him, as He humbled Himself and died for me. I owe it all to Jesus. I am His slave.
