Sunday Bible Study:
John 1:17 – 18
v. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.
v. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
1:17 The law makes demands on man according to what God is; grace supplies man with what God is to meet what God demands. The law, at most, was only a testimony of what God is (Exo. 25:21), but reality is the realization of what God is. No man can partake of God through the law, but grace enables man to enjoy God. Reality is God realized by man, and grace is God enjoyed by man.
1:18 The Father’s only begotten Son declared God by the Word, life, light, grace, and reality. The Word is God expressed, life is God imparted, light is God shining, grace is God enjoyed, and reality is God realized, apprehended. God is fully declared in the Son through these five things.
