THE GOD OF JESUS
Old Covenant / New Covenant
People followed Jesus after the resurrection because of the resurrection.
What Jesus said about God can be trusted.
If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on, you do know him and have seen him! John 14:7 NLT
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” John 14:8 NLT
Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don’t know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? John 14:9 NLT
Don’t you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. John 14:10 NLT
Jesus - If you want to know what God says, listen to me.
If you want to know what God is up to, watch me.
Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do. John 14:11 NLT
For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth. John 4:24 NLT
Jesus said, “This is how you should pray:“Father... Luke 11:2 NLT
We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in his love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them. 1 John 4:16 NLT
Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. 1 John 4:18 NLT
Shade requires the sun.
Love must necessarily pre-exist unlove.
Why is there evil in the world?
Why do you know there is evil in the world?
Perfect love preceded us.
God = Father / Spirit / Love
