God’s Face in the New Testament

Jayson Georges suggests that the bible wants us to understand that God welcomes us into his presence. We are welcome to see the face of God. Yet so often we chose to turn away in shame. The bible tells us very clearly that:

God shows and offers his face to people, but due to both disgrace and arrogance people often turn their faces away, from glorious communion to shameless isolation.

The bible often talks of the ‘face’ of God, particularly in the Old Testament, but its message comes into clear focus in the New Testament. See:
