Jesus Revealed God to Man
You have come to the most important lesson of the course. In each lesson we have had an opportunity to hear messages and examine the life of a great man in God’s service. The words and actions of these men speak for themselves. We have indeed heard from the prophets.
We have heard truths concerning the nature of God, the nature of sin, the need for judgment, the love and concern of God for us, and the plan He provides to save us. We have heard prophets tell people to expect the arrival of a truly great One. They have called Him the Messiah.
We have heard. The question is, have we listened with open minds and hearts? Sometimes we hear but have our minds clogged with other matters and do not truly listen. The main purpose of this course has been to help us really listen and understand what the messages from the prophets mean to us personally. We are responsible to think about these lessons and act in accordance with what we have learned.
One writer of sacred literature has said it like this We must pay more careful attention to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. We must not ignore what we have heard. In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways. But now, says this writer, God has spoken through One who is the true revelation of God’s love; this One being the Word of God to all mankind.
This true revelation of God, of whom the prophets spoke, is the expected Messiah. When He began to speak for Himself, those who heard Him were amazed. They said, “His message has authority!”
