God's Final Word

"His word was not completely uttered until Christ came; but when Christ came, the word spoken in him was indeed God's final word. In him all the promises of God meet with the answering 'Yes!' which seals their fulfillment to his people and evokes from them an answering 'Amen!' The story of divine revelation is a story of progression up to Christ, but there is no progression beyond him." (F.F. Bruce, The Epistle to the Hebrews, 46).
