The Bible starts with a sentence that sets the stage and it shows us the first way that God revealed Himself to His people. “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” What we know about God, we know because He has made Himself known.
We look at some of the prophecies of the coming Messiah and the promises of what God would do. God would again be among His people.
God promised that He would somehow be tangible. He would be seen. He would be known. He would be with His people in a way that surpassed everything that He had done before.
