The world did not know Him
There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. (John 6-11).
So to say John was a pioneer/forerunner for the Son of God with a special task: testify about the true Light, by Who the world was spoken into existence through the work of the Spirit!
In the letter of Hebrews we read this:
God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they. (Hebrews 1:1-4).
At last! God has spoken in His Son who is heir over what? All things! Who made the world and upholds all things by the word of His power? The Son! What is the current position of the Son? At the right hand of the Majesty on high, what speaks of Power! At what moment the Son took His place? After He had made purification of sins. What is the Son doing there? He is our High Priest who prays and pleads for us by the Father! What is His name: Jesus Christ our Lord!
