The true light in recorded words

The true light

The recorded words of the prophets and other servants of God, our Old Testament, formed long time the only written source of knowledge about God.

God, who looks at His creation would love to have man accepting Him as their Divine Creator and heavenly Father. Jehovah, the Only One True God holds onto IsraEl, His chosen. He accepted a special people for Himself and poured His Breath out upon the blessed ones like Jacob, Abraham and many others. Though He let them know that He will pass judgement on nations. Jehovah our God; He who made and assembled the sky; He who established the earth, and all the things that are in it; He who gave His breath to the people… breath of life to those who walk in His ways, He has called us in justice and wants us to keep His mitzva, His commandments which are given to protect us.

Jehovah God gave a Sacred Agreement to Jacob to make him a light to the nations; to open the eyes of the blind; to lead out those who are tied up in bonds, and those who sit in dark dungeons. All the world has to get to know His Name and that there is no other God besides Him. He is Jehovah our God… His Name, His glory He’ll give to no other, and His supremacy He will not give, to things that have been carved.

Isa 42:1-7 The Scriptures 1998+ (1) “See, My Servant whom I uphold, My Chosen One My being has delighted in! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He brings forth right-ruling to the nations. (2) “He does not cry out, nor lifts up His voice, nor causes His voice to be heard in the street. (3) “A crushed reed He does not break, and smoking flax He does not quench. He brings forth right-ruling in accordance with truth. (4) “He does not become weak or crushed, until He has established right-ruling in the earth. And the coastlands wait for His Torah.” (5) Thus said the Ěl, יהוה {Jehovah}, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it, and spirit to those who walk on it: (6) “I, יהוה {Jehovah}, have called You in righteousness, and I take hold of Your hand and guard You, and give You for a covenant to a people, for a light to the gentiles, (7) to open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the prison, those who sit in darkness from the prison house.

In the above-quoted portion of Isaiah is the great revelation announced that God will provide His servant, whom He upholds; His chosen one in whom God is well pleased. Jehovah God has put His spirit upon him. There shall be brought forth judgement to the Gentiles so that in truth there will be revealed.

The Elohim made a light to the nations, to open blind eyes, to bring prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness, so that they should not have any excuse of never have been in the possibility to know how everything was or is and Who the Creator is. (Isaiah 42:. 1 to 3.7) And if this higher form of revelation took place, says the letter to the Hebrews:

Heb 1:1-2 The Scriptures 1998+  (1)  Elohim, having of old spoken in many portions and many ways to the fathers by the prophets,  (2)  has in these last days spoken to us by the Son, whom He has appointed heir of all, through whom also He made the ages,1 Footnote: 1John 1:3.

God, in sundry times and in various ways spoke to the fathers by the prophets. He also sent His prophet Jeshua, to show his heavenly Father to the world, but also to warn man for the last days.

Still God, but by his Son, focuses in revelation to man. This saying of the Apostle John:

Joh 1:6-9 The Scriptures 1998+  (6)  There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was Yoḥanan.  (7)  This one came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all might believe through him.  (8)  He was not that Light, but that he might bear witness of that Light.  (9)  He was the true Light, which enlightens every man, coming into the world.

We should come to see that true light that came into the world to enlighten every man (John 1: 9). That man born in Bethlehem witnessed about himself

Joh 8:12 The Scriptures 1998+  (12)  Therefore יהושע {Jeshua} spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall by no means walk in darkness, but possess the light of life.”1 Footnote: 1 See 11:9-10.

Jeshua, Jesus Christ himself is not God, but the sent one from God, who is the light, the representative of God and the Way to the Only True God.

Joh 14:6 The Scriptures 1998+  (6)  יהושע {Jeshua} said to him, “I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Also everything connected with this revelation is recorded, which we call the New Testament. That too is a written testimony. But there is another reason not to believe that with the coming of Jesus the importance of the Bible, or even of the Old Testament can be put aside or would have to take a step back.

Those who read the Gospels shall inevitably come impressed by Scripture Knowledge of the Lord Jesus, and by the authority which he awarded to those Scriptures. Time after time he answered questions with phrases like:

“Have you not read”

or

“What is written, how do you read it?”.

The Scriptures were apparently for him an infallible source of knowledge. It’s notable that he nowhere doubted the truth of what is written. He used arguments that would have no evidence if the events in the Old Testament where they literally refer to, would not have happened that way. But he sometimes argued based on exact representation; apparently were the Scriptures not only for him inspired in essence, but also in their verbatim.
