Jesus Christ is not just gentle, He is gentleness.
He is not just kind, He is kindness.
He is not just a peacemaker, He is peace.
He is not just truthful, He is Truth.
. . .
If Jesus is the beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega, why look for another beginning, why fear the end?
One last thought from me that perhaps relates. The book of Hebrews begins this way:
"In many and various ways God spoke of old to our fathers by the prophets; but in these last days has spoken to us by a Son ..."
One way to read this is that Jesus was the messenger. Another, more subtle way to read this is that Jesus was the message. See the difference?
