Christ Glorified Now

Christ Glorified Now

When he had gone out, Jesus said, “Now is the Son of Man glorified, and God is glorified in him. If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and glorify him at once.

John 13:31-32 (ESV)

“Now is the Son of Man glorified.” Jesus often referred to Himself using the title “Son of Man” – a reference to Daniel 7 in which the Messiah is prophesied to arrive in heaven and receive an everlasting kingdom.

God is glorified by the death of Christ because the cross fully displays the character of God. His faithfulness is revealed in fulfilled prophesy. His holiness and wrath are made evident, because God’s purity and justice can not be compromised.

God’s love is on display: “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8 (ESV)
