Hebert: His words

Saturday, November 21, 2020
    [Jesus:] “All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows who the Son is except the Father, and no one knows who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.”
    —Luke 10:22 (NIV)
    [Jesus’] moral teaching does not consist of a universal scheme of ethics, a series of precepts which would be universally valid by whomever they had been spoken. They are to be heard as His word, spoken by Him, with the impact of His person behind them.
    ... Gabriel Hebert (1886-1963), The Christ of Faith and the Jesus of History, London: SCM Press, 1962, p. 105 (see the book)
    See also Luke 10:22; Isa. 49:2; 55:11; Matt. 7:28-29; Heb. 4:12-13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the King.
