A 2-Fold Answer:

- God’s Intent: Life with Him

          — Reality: Alienation from God and others (Ep. 2:12)

-Salvation has come through Jesus (Lk. 1:78-79)

 

2. Jesus is the Light of God’s Presence

- God’s Intent: All creation as God’s temple

           — Reality: Creation subjected to futility (Rm. 8)

- God is present in Jesus (Jn. 8:12)
