The scripture references below go with today’s post of A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom.
Mark 10:17-18 (This is where Jesus says that no one is good but God alone.)
Colossians 1:15 (Here Paul states clearly that Jesus is the image of God.)
Hebrews 1:3 (In language a little more precise than “image of God,” we read here that Jesus is “the exact representation of God’s nature.”)
Jesus clearly demonstrated more goodness than we have ever seen from a human being. And in seeing that great human goodness, we can finally begin to comprehend the goodness of God.
