Jesus, the True House of God – (John 1:47-50 – The Gospel of John presents Jesus as the true way of access to God and the Greater Bethel, the “House of God”)

WORD OF GOD REVEALED

The Final Word of God – Jesus – (Hebrews 1:1-3 – His final and complete word surpasses all previous revelations)

The Word of the Son Surpasses the Word given to Moses – (Hebrews 3:1-6 – Hebrews demonstrates the superiority of the Son over even Moses – A Son is of higher rank than the chief servant of a household)

God’s Mysteries are Revealed in Jesus – (Hebrews 3:1-6 – All God’s mysteries are revealed in Jesus Christ, especially, in his death and resurrection)

Shadow or Substance – (Jesus is the substance that casts the shadows of the Old Testament, not vice versa)

Jesus Interprets the Father – (John 1:18 – God is revealed fully in Jesus, not the Law that was given at Mount Sinai)

Jesus, the Key that Unlocks Prophecy – (Jesus is the interpretive key to prophecy and Scripture)
