Have you ever stopped and said, what is going on with our world? You don’t have to look very far before you find brokenness, injustice, and evil around us. So how did we get here? Why are people so hateful, selfish, and corrupt? In this video, we see how the Bible says our world got so messed up, how that affects our personal lives, and how change needs to begin within us. 



[John 1:1-3]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 He was with God in the beginning.3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.


[John 1:14]

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son 1 from the Father, full of grace and truth.


[John 1:17-18]

For the law was given through Moses, but God’s unfailing love and faithfulness came through Jesus Christ.


Old Testament – Faith in what Jesus would eventually do.

New Testament – Faith in what Jesus has already done.



[John 20:21]

Again he said, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.”



[John 10:27]

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.


[Hebrews 1:1-5]

Long ago God spoke many times and in many ways to our ancestors through the prophets. And now in these final days, he has spoken to us through his Son. God promised everything to the Son as an inheritance, and through the Son he created the universe. The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven. This shows that the Son is far greater than the angels, just as the name God gave him is greater than their names.



It isn’t so much that Jesus brought a message from the Father; He is a message from the Father. The idea is that Jesus is far more than the latest or best prophet. He has revealed something no other prophet could.

The revelation from Jesus Himself was unique because not only was it purely God’s message (as was the case with every other inspired writer) but it was also God’s personality through which the message came. The personality of Paul, Peter, John, and other Biblical writers is clear in their writings. Yet in the revelation from Jesus, we see the personality of God.

– David Guzik


The brightness of His glory: Jesus is the brightness of the Father’s glory. The ancient Greek word for brightness is apaugasma, which speaks of the radiance that shines from a source of light.
