Article describing Christ's mission on earth as being to reveal the character of God to man.

Some excerpts:

Christ came to represent the Father. We behold in him the image of the invisible God. He clothed his divinity with humanity, and came to the world that the erroneous ideas Satan had been the means of creating in the minds of men, in regard to the character of God, might be removed.

God was represented [by Satan] as severe, exacting, revengeful, and arbitrary.

The very attributes that belonged to the character of Satan, the evil one represented as belonging to the character of God. Jesus came to teach men of the Father, to correctly represent him before the fallen children of earth.

The only way in which he could set and keep men right was to make himself visible and familiar to their eyes.

The Father was revealed in Christ as altogether a different being from that which Satan had represented him to be.

Christ exalted the character of God, attributing to him the praise, and giving to him the credit, of the whole purpose of his own mission on earth,--to set men right through the revelation of God. In Christ was arrayed before men the paternal grace and the matchless perfections of the Father.

When the object of his mission was attained,--the revelation of God to the world,--the Son of God announced that his work was accomplished, and that the character of the Father was made manifest to men.
