• The Example of Jesus

    John 13:12–17

    Jesus, as God incarnate, is the Lord and Master of creation. But He is also the Suffering Servant who pays the price for sin. We cannot atone for the sins of others, but we can imitate Jesus in being willing ...Read More

  • Father and Son Together

  • The Father and the Son’s Sabbath Labor

    John 5:15–18

    John 4:31–34

  • The Form of God

    Philippians 2:5–6
