and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts:
“I am the first and I am the last;
besides me there is no god."

-Isaiah 44:6

12  “Listen to me, O Jacob,
and Israel, whom I called!
I am he; I am the first,
and I am the last.

-Isaiah 48:12
9  For you, O Lord, are most high over all the earth;
you are exalted far above all gods.

-Psalm 97:9
The 1695 Baptist Catechism comes in a question and answer format to help the reader learn. Each question and answer helps progress the narrative of scripture and our understanding of it in a systematic way. This catechism starts off its trove of knowledge and wisdom by pointing believers to God. "Who is the chiefest, or greatest being? God.

There is no one even close. He is the first and the last. No one is beside Him. He is exalted far above any created being any false god we could craft.

What a God we serve. What a God deserving of our worship. As we progress through the catechism we will learn more about God, who He is and what He expects of His creation.
