Jesus, Only Jesus – a bit of WHY

As I mentioned yesterday Jesus said:

All things have been handed over to Me by My Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father; nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and anyone to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. – Matthew 11:27

So why is it that you can only know God the Father through Jesus?

An Aside

By the way, let me just say that exclusivity is not inherently evil. I know it is portrayed that way in this generation, but it is not wrong for there to be only one correct answer.

Consider an Island community with one point of access, be it a bridge or a ferry. It may at times be inconvenient, but it is not wrong to say the way to the island is thus and such a highway. It is in fact helpful and instructive to point out such a fact. If I want to have access to this island, this becomes critically important information.

Back to Jesus.

Check out what the writer of Hebrews says:

God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, – Hebrews 1:1-3

One of the key reasons God the Father gave us His Son Jesus was to show us Himself. Jesus is the clearest and most precise image of God we will ever receive.

You see Jesus is the Word of God made flesh. He is God’s chosen form of communication. Jesus is God speaking to us in a language we can all grasp. Want to see God? Look at Jesus and you will see God’s priorities, God’s attitudes, God’s heart and mind expressed in action.

Will you follow Him with me today?
