Neill: making Himself known

Wednesday, December 20, 2023
    At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. As Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
    —Mark 1:9-11 (NIV)
    God may be inscrutable; but if He is really God, there can be nothing to prevent Him from making known everything about Himself that can be known by man. And this is exactly what He has done.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), Jesus Through Many Eyes, Philadelphia: Fortress Press, 1976, p. 145 (see the book)
    See also Mark 1:9-11; Ex. 3:1-6,13-14; Matt. 3:17; 16:17; 17:5; Mark 9:7; Luke 3:22; 9:35; John 3:16; 14:9; 15:15; 2 Cor. 4:4; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:1-2; 2:2-4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we know You through Your Son.
