Jesus Is The Brightness of God’s Glory (Part 2)

Today's Lesson Read Hebrews 1:1-12 Someone commented on one of my previous posts that the statement made in Hebrews 1:3, that Jesus is the brightness of God's glory, does not necessarily mean Jesus is God.

This, however, does not mean that God is air, but that He is transcendent: His being consists of something that is beyond what is physical, beyond … Continue reading God Is A Spirit
