Grace and Reality

John 1:17—“For the law was given through Moses; grace and reality came through Jesus Christ.”

Note 1 on law, grace, and reality says: “The law makes demands on man according to what God is; grace supplies man with what God is to meet what God demands. The law, at most, was only a testimony of what God is (Exo. 25:21), but reality is the realization of what God is. No man can partake of God through the law, but grace enables man to enjoy God. Reality is God realized by man, and grace is God enjoyed by man.”

Cross-reference “a” on grace directs us to this verse:

John 1:14: “And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us (and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only Begotten from the Father), full of grace and reality.”
