1. It is not God who is hiding from man. The apostle Paul would centuries later say, “[God] is not far from each one of us.” (Acts 17:27)
2. It is not man who is looking for God. Otherwise Jesus would have told the parable of the lost shepherd, not that of the lost sheep.
Both these points go counter to what contemporary culture tells us, that man is on a search for a God who is difficult to find.
