Excerpt from God Translated
It has been my custom each year to preach on Sunday mornings a series of sermons follow ing some trunk line of thought. The sermons in this volume are chosen from the series of last year which were studies in the Gospel of John. They sought to find the simpler and more human interpretation of Jesus, while, at the same time, they gave all reverence to that other something we call the Divine.
Ever since the populace of Jerusalem cried, on that day of triumph, Who is he? The world has been repeating the question. Today, amid the wreck and ruin of our generation, we ask it with tenser meaning. The second sermon answers, - He is a translation of God. As Greek is translated into English, that the Eng lish scholar may read and understand, so God is translated into human form, that human people may know and understand Him. Jesus Christ so perfectly translates God that we all may know the very thought and heart and love of God if we study the life and work of Jesus.
