Now Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, – Luke 4:16

It is interesting to note that JESUS, THE WORD, went to Synagogue. Many today don’t go to church because the preaching doesn’t inspire them. They get more from their quiet time than from the preacher. JESUS was THE WORD and He went to Hear and to Read the Word.

Now notice this. JESUS read from the OLD TESTAMENT. The WORD read the Word and He knew that these were the words of His Father in heaven. Today many have relegated the Old Testament to religious antiquities and think that the only real Bible is the New Testament. They talk like there is an Old Testament God and a New Testament God, and seem to imply that they are not the same God.

Jesus understood the heart of the Father. Jesus is the exact representation of the Old Testament God. If you have seen Jesus, you have seen the Old Testament God. He is the same today.
