The one who exegeted God

devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2373

John 1:14-18

Joh 1:14 The Word became flesh and lodged among us. We took notice of how bright he shown, the brightness that the one and only Son from the Father can show, full of grace and truth.
Joh 1:15 (John testified about him and exclaimed, “He was the one of whom I said, ‘The one coming after me ranks in front of me, because he existed before me.'”)
Joh 1:16 Because, we have all received grace after grace from his fullness,
Joh 1:17 Because the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
Joh 1:18 No one has ever seen God. The one and only Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’s side– he has explained him.

The one who exegeted God

When a preacher studies a Bible passage so well that she can explain the passage clearly to her listeners, we call her an exegete. That is what Jesus did for us. Nobody had ever seen God, but he did. He had been — and now is — at the Father’s side. He knows what God is like, because he is his only Son. Jesus has exegeted (ἐξηγήσατο) God for us.

Thank you, Lord, for explaining who God is, and what he wants.
