There is no more perfect representation of God’s nature than Jesus.
Because “no one has ever seen God” (Jn. 1:18), God has made Himself known to us through Jesus, who is called the “exact imprint of God’s nature” (Heb. 1:3). The phrase “exact imprint” in the ancient world was generally used to refer to an engraving in wood, an etching in metal, an impression in clay, and a stamped image on coins. The writer of Hebrews is stating the Son of God is the perfect representation of the nature and essence of God in the created world. Let this design remind you of Jesus, the exact imprint of the nature of God.
“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.” (Hebrews 1:1-3)
