The Mystery of Godliness: 1 Timothy 3:16

The Mystery of Godliness: 1 Timothy 3:16
“By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, Was vindicated in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Proclaimed among the nations, Believed on in the world, Taken up in glory.” 1 Timothy‬ ‭3:16‬
Every aspect of the life of Jesus Christ contributed to the gospel. This verse alludes to His pre-existence, His incarnation, His Deity, His sinlessness, the continual angelic interaction and affirmation of every aspect of His life, the spread of the good news of His death burial and resurrection and His ascension to heaven.
Each of these claims are worthy of a detailed book examining all of the supporting Scriptures. Jesus Christ is in a category all of His own. Let me try to introduce Him to You: He is the Uncaused Cause, the Creator of all things, the Sustainer, the Only Begotten Son of God, Higher than the angels, Holy, Sinless, the Perfect Sacrifice, the Savior of the World, the Author of Salvation, the Son of Man, the Carpenters Son, the Promised One of Israel, the Messiah, the Way, the Truth, the Life, the Door, the Bread of Life, the Living Water, the True Vine, the Good Shepherd, the Resurrection and the Life, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace, the Lamb of God, the Lion of Judah, the Groom and Head of the Church, the Living One, He Who is and Who was and is to Come, The First and the Last, The Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords!
That may have been a long sentence, but it’s just a brief introduction of Jesus Christ; The Mystery of Godliness.
