Credo 3 - ... the Father ...

Thursday, April 19, 2007
There are three senses in which God may be said to be 'Father', each one revealing a deeper reality of the life of God. The first references we find of God as Father in Scripture come in the Pentateuch at the beginning of the Old Testament. Here we find references to God as Father, where 'Father' seems to convey a sense that God is the origin of all creation, without whom nothing can have existence. In the book of Deuteronomy we read how Moses saw the Father's act of creation as an act which sets up a relationship between God and creation (Deut 32:6-9). The second sense in which God is father, is an extension of the first, and is revealed to Moses in the giving of the Law. The special bond between the Father and the people of Israel is thus revealed by the covenant which God has with his people, a people considered by God as his 'first born Son' (Ex 4:22). Thus we have a deeper sense of God's love, and learn something of God as a God who calls his people into communion with him.
