ON CHRIST AS THE ULTIMATE MANIFESTATION OF GOD

“God is best known in Christ; the sun is not seen but by the light of the sun.” (William Bridge)

 

“In the Scriptures there is a draught of God, but in Christ there is God Himself. A coin bears the image of Caesar, but Caesar’s son is his own lively resemblance. Christ is the living Bible.” (Thomas Manton)

 

“In nature, we see God, as it were, like the sun in a picture; in thelaw, as the sun in a cloud; in Christ we see Him in His beams; He being ‘the brightness of His glory, and the exact image of His person.'”(Stephen Charnock)

(From THE GOLDEN TREASURY OF PURITAN QUOTATIONS, p. 45.)
