Four Truths of Jesus

Revelation 22:13 (ESV) … “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

“I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13). This is the fourth time in the book of Revelation that Christ has been identified as the “Alpha and Omega” (see Revelation 1:8; 1:11; 21:6 for the other three times). “Alpha” is the first letter of the Greek alphabet and “Omega” is the last. “The first and the last” emphasize this fact. This text shows at least four things about Christ.

• The sufficiency of Christ. Christ is all sufficient for salvation. Everything from A to Z in salvation is found in Him.

• The satisfaction in Christ. Christ will totally satisfy those who receive Him as Savior. Jesus does not disappoint.

• The Sovereignty in Christ. This phrase emphasizes that Jesus is God. He comprises everything that constitutes God (Colossians 1:19; 2:9).

• The superiority of Christ. No one else dare say this of themselves. Christ is superior to all others.[1]
