Is there a disparity between the Old and New Testaments on the doctrine of the invisibility of God? This article considers the evidence, suggesting to take seriously the Old Testament statements that God can be seen, and to reconsider what the New Testament passages (e.g., John 1:18, John 5:37, 1 John 4:12) claim when they refer to God's invisibility.
This article is an exposition of John 5:19-47.
Chapter 1 is a consideration of the theme of preaching Jesus and the gospel from the Old Testament. The author develops his theme by reflecting on John 5:31-47. In this text the importance of Scripture as a witness to the mission of Jesus Christ is unfolded. John refers also to other witnesses: John the Baptist, Jesus’ own works, and the Father. The author continues with a defence of the Old Testament as part of the Christian canon.
