The Second Commandment and Jesus

God commanded men not to make an image of him, but the implied promise in the second commandment is that God would make an image of himself. He did not want his people trying to make an image of him because his purpose was to show himself to his people in the person of Jesus Christ. The fulfillment of the second commandment is the birth of Jesus Christ.
(Edmund P. Clowney)
Hebrews 1:3 "The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being,.."
Col. 1:15 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation."
Just a Thought!
