JESUS – THE MYSTERY OF GOD

Colossians 2:1-7

I. A biblical “mystery” is “a truth previously concealed but now revealed,”

A. It is like our grandson who loves to hide from the adults in the household, often hiding under a blanket, etc. He thinks no one can see him, even when he moves around under the blanket. Sometimes he partially comes out from under the blanket or looks out to see if he sees us coming;. (We play along by acting as if we can’t see him.) Eventually, he takes the blanket off and we can see him.

B. In the Old Testament Jesus is concealed because it is not the Father’s time/will. – In New Testament He is fully revealed (in certain portions He is partially revealed as in Isaiah)

C. In Old Testament the result of His movement and being is seen, in New Testament His movement and its purpose is revealed.

II. Jesus is called the “Mystery of God several times by Paul.
A. Ephesians 1:7-9
B. Colossians 2:2
C. Ephesians 3:1-12 (A treatise on the mystery revealed to Gentiles)

III. The mystery of Christ is also called “the mystery of grace” and “the mystery of the gospel.”
A. Ephesians 6:6:19

IV. The mystery affects relationships and behavior
A. Colossians 4:2-6; I John 1:3-4)

V. The mystery reveals the Father as well as the Son
A. I Timothy 3:14-16 (compare Revelation 10:5-7)
1. His Patience (He took thousands of years to fully reveal Jesus)
2. His Love (John 3:15; I John 4:7-10)
3. His Purpose (Ephesians 1:3-10)
