The Bible Unveils a Profound Relationship

between the Father and the Son, Jesus the Messiah. This bond is so strong that at times, they seem almost interchangeable in the scriptures. While there are passages where they appear distinctly, like in Psalms 2 and 110, many verses highlight their inseparable nature. For instance, Isaiah 42:1-9 shows the Father commissioning His Son as a light to the Gentiles.

This unity is crucial; the Father and the Son are one. The Father’s authority is expressed through His Son. The Son, a vital part of the Father, was sent to redeem people and build a holy community.


Jesus is God the Creator

Understanding Jesus’s divine nature is a journey into the heart of the Bible. Let’s start with Genesis 1:1 and explore His role in creation.

Genesis 1:1 - "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."

This verse opens the story of Creation, where God’s powerful Word brings the universe to life. Throughout Genesis 1, the phrase "God said..." highlights the power of His Word.

John 1:1-3 - "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made."

The Aramaic English New Testament (AENT) reveals that the original term for "Word" is "Miltha" (מֶלתָא), means more than just "Word"; it implies "Manifestation" or "Substance." Jesus is this divine substance, the power of God in creation.

Both the apostle Paul and King David mention this truth:

Colossians 1:15-16 - "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him."

So does King David:

Psalms 33:6 - "By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth."

And so does the New Testament say:

Hebrews 1:10 - "And, You, Lord, in the beginning have laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Your hands:"

With these and many other scriptures, we have ample evidence (as per Deuteronomy 19:15 and Matthew 18:16) to establish:

Jesus is one of Elohim (אֱלוֹהִים), “God,” the plural form of Elo’ah (אֱלוֹהּ), which means “God.”
Jesus is the Word of God.
Jesus is the Creator of the heaven and earth; all things, that are visible and invisible.

Jesus: The Authority and the Sacrifice

Jesus holds a place of high authority, seated at the right hand of God, surpassing even the angels in honor (Hebrews 1:8, 1:4). Yet, in a profound act of humility and love, He chose to become temporarily lesser than the angels (Hebrews 2:7), taking on human form. Why? To bear the punishment for our corrupted nature and blood resulting in a sinful life.

When we listen to the impulses of our corrupted nature, we enter a state of unrest. The Bible consistently teaches that this can only be addressed by offering innocent blood, which provides a covering for sin’s consequences followed by building a life that is guided by the Spirit of God instead, as to this way enter into His rest. This principle was demonstrated early in the Bible when God made garments of animal skins for Adam and Eve (Genesis 3:21), demonstrating that blood was needed to cover their sin after which they went into much turmoil to learn the lessons of redemption.

However, this required regular sacrifices of innocent animals to cover our corrupt nature. Jesus came to earth to become the ultimate, perfect sacrifice, dying for His children. His mission is summarized in John 3:16, promising eternal life to all who believe in Him.

John 3:16b: "...that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

We invite you to come to Jesus now. Accept His perfect, innocent blood as the covering for your sins. In doing so, you can restore perfect harmony with God and Yeshua. Embrace this gift of reconciliation and experience the peace that comes from being in right relationship with your Creator.
