John Sermon Series - February 3 - 'The Glory of God'

When we hear the word ‘glory’, we think of grandeur and greatness, majesty and magnificence. The Old Testament Hebrew word for ‘glory’ literally means weight, with the thought being ‘weighty’ or ‘significant’. The New Testament Greek word for ‘glory’ literally means ‘reveal’ or ‘appearance’. The most weighty and significant thing Jesus reveals about the Father is His “grace and truth,” or, as I understand it: “the truth of His grace”. My favorite commentary on the Gospel of John claims we should translate “full of grace and truth” as “truly gracious”.
