“Yes,”he replied. He had brought a dictionary.
Why? Because, within a dictionary, one could find the texts of every other book.
In Revelation, Jesus calls Himself Alpha and Omega, which are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. One could say He is A to Z and everything in between.
John, who wrote the book we call Revelation, in his gospel had referred to Jesus as The Word.
The point of this text in Revelation is that Jesus is the Eternal God. In the beginning, Jesus already existed. In the end, Jesus will be. There are, yet, other lessons that we can learn from the title Alpha and Omega. One of them is this:
He is all we need, and sufficient for all our needs. We need no other god and no other power; He is our everything. Our breath. Our life. Our resurrection. Our bread. Our water. The Holy One. His only Son.
He is the complete Word, the first and the last word on the topic of salvation. In Him, we have the complete story of the redemption of humanity. In His holiness we find completion. And in His grace we find mercy.
In His Holy Word, we finds His life, and everything we need for our life. Every word preserved in His Word points to Him. History is His story.
He is that dictionary that contains every story. He created all that exists, and was then born into that creation. He is the King of Kings. He is my King.
