Last week Pastor Richard talked about signs pointing to Jesus. This week he talks about shadows pointing to Jesus! Specifically, the sacrifices in the temple. And once you get what the shadows point to, you understand why Jesus made a whip and cleaned house!
The miracles that Jesus performed were signs. But signs don’t point to themselves, they point toward something else. What were Jesus’ signs pointing toward? Pastor Richard answers that question as he walks you through John 2 and Jesus turning water in to wine at the wedding in Cana.
It’s a simple invitation that we often overly complicate. But when you recognize that both the Old and New Testament point to Christ, you can’t help but tell your friends, “Come and see!”
How do we know God? John 1:18 teaches that Jesus is fully divine and the one who was seen in the Old Testament when people saw God. John’s Gospel portrays Jesus as the one who reveals God.
Sometimes we’re tempted to divert our faith away from the true God who comes to us with flesh and blood. We’re tempted to turn to some abstract imaginary force somewhere in the universe that does things from time to time. But that’s not the God we’re looking for.
