An Exact Imprint of God

Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets, but in these last days He has spoken to us by a Son. He is the reflection of God’s glory and the exact imprint of God’s very being. He sustains all things by His powerful word.
Hebrews 1:1-3(NRSV)

Jesus is the imprint of God. He is God in the flesh (John 1:14). That’s just pretty darn cool.

If we want to know God, we need to know Jesus. (tweet this)

So if you’re wondering where to begin studying the Bible, study Jesus as told by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. We often focus on Jesus’ teachings, which are clearly important, but His entire life reveals God. Take careful note of His words and tone of voice, His actions and inactions, His friends and enemies, how He treats people, and His intentional and accidental encounters. They all reveal God.

Jesus is the exact imprint of God’s very being.

If God is speaking through His Son, what is He saying to you?
