We all too often lose sight of what we have witnessed and heard, or we simply believe we can no longer witness or hear anything. God has spoken and created through his Son. God continues to speak (in many forms) to people and create new life in them. God has made his exact imprint known in his Son. May you see this imprint reflected in your life and in the lives of others.

May you see, know and feel the superiority of the Son in your life—his superiority over all the created order, heaven and earth. And may you inherit the salvation that was witnessed to prior to his birth and continues to be spoken "in him in these last days."

May God speak new creation into your life, may his sacrifice heal your wounds and guide you through whatever circumstances you are enduring. May he bring you great joy in His creation, in His speech and in His Son.


The Masoretic Text (MT) is the Hebrew Scriptures as traditionally received by the majority of the Jewish community. The MT did not reach its final form until the medieval era. The two oldest copies of the MT, the Aleppo Codex and the Leningrad Codex, both date to around the tenth century AD.

The Septuagint (LXX) is a Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures, which began around the third century BC. The oldest copies of the LXX are in Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus, both dating to around the fourth century AD.
