Embrace Christ, and Do Away with Prior Conceptions of God

The Bible points us to Jesus Christ.  It does so in a progressive way.  That is, the first three-fourths of the Bible (the Old Testament) is veiled in its references to Him, but the last fourth (the New Testament) is explicit in revealing Him.  Moreover, the last fourth gives us a new way of reading the first three-fourths such that Jesus Christ is much more apparent there than was the case in the original reading.

The entire Bible therefore directs us to Jesus Christ as the ultimate revelation of God.  We must therefore embrace Christ and be done with prior conceptions of God.

We must clear out the old conceptions to make way for the new (1 Corinthians 5:7; Leviticus 26:10).

We must let what is old and obsolete in humanity’s understanding of God disappear so that we can fully embrace what is new (Hebrews 8:13).

For as the apostle Paul said, when the perfect comes, the partial is done away (1 Corinthians 13:10).

The revelation of Jesus Christ is telling us to let go of all prior conceptions of God.  Let us do so, lest our hands be too full to fully grasp Christ.  For in Him truly all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are found (Colossians 2:1-4).  We will lose nothing and gain everything by embracing Christ.
