B. God speaks to us in the Son—Heb. 1:1–2; 1 Pet. 1:10–12; John 5:39

Luke 24:27   And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, He explained to them clearly in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

Luke 24:44   And He said to them, These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all the things written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and Psalms concerning Me must be fulfilled.

John 5:39–40   You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is these that testify concerning Me. 40 Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.

John 5:46   For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote concerning Me.

Heb. 10:7   Then I said, Behold, I have come (in the roll of the book it is written concerning Me) to do Your will, O God.”

Heb. 1:1–2 God, having spoken of old in many portions and in many ways to the fathers in the prophets, 2 Has at the last of these days spoken to us in the Son, whom He appointed Heir of all things, through whom also He made the universe.
