Represent. The word. We have connotations about it, right? Perhaps the main point being that representation implies the person being represented is actually absent. Are you following this? Well, reconsider represent & re-present.
In God’s Word, He is not only represented through the prophets, apostles, and written words, but He is RE-PRESENT, present AGAIN! “Re” means again and once more!
Maybe I’m missing something or am not quite clear regarding this point. Either way, I suddenly think that represent & re-present are a super cool pair of words. 🙂
That’s enough to count as a post, isn’t it? 😉
I suspect this also connects to how God works through mediators & mediations.
