    Jesus: The Final Revelation of God!

    Jesus: The Final Revelation of God!

    In the Old Testament, God spoke to Adam, Noah, Moses and many others. He did this in many ways—such as parables, prophecy, dreams, visions and angelic visitations. Yet these revelations were never complete. But we no longer need to seek visions or go to prophets to know God. Why?
