what does jesus reveal?

At Faith, we are diving into a Sunday teaching series called "The Historical Jesus". We're taking a number of weeks to bypass studies of theology, and to just simply look at what the Gospel Narratives describe about the life, personality, Jewishness and culture of Jesus.

What amazes me about the study of Jesus is the realization that He gives us the window into God's nature. We don't have to wonder, "What is God like?" Jesus said, "To see me is to see the Father."

Philip Yancey said, "Books of theology tend to define God by what he NOT: God is immortal, invisible, infinite. But what is God like, positively? For the Christian, Jesus answers such all important questions."
