Jesus – The Revelation of God

Often when we do our theology, we start by aiming to describe God and prove his attributes, then move on to prove that Jesus is also God. Have you ever considered doing it the other way? Since Jesus is the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1), is it any wonder that we can point to biblical verses that describe him exhibiting every attribute of God? We can therefore learn to understand God more through understanding Jesus. (The list that follows originally appeared in a previous post.)
