The Father and the Son glorified each other

How the Father and the Son glorified or exalted each other? The Son glorified the Father by telling to the people that the Father sent him, that the Father is greater than him (John 14:28). Jesus also prayed to the Father while the people watching him. On the other end, the Father glorified the Son by declaring him as His beloved son right from the heavens (Mark 1:11). Many had witnessed that event and heard the Father’s voice. He also called Jesus as God in the Holy Scripture (Psalm 45:6-7 & Hebrews 1:8-9). Below are Biblical verses about glorifying God;

2. [Isaiah 60:9] “Surely the coastlands will wait for Me; And the ships of Tarshish will come first, To bring your sons from afar, Their silver and their gold with them, For the name of the LORD your God, And for the Holy One of Israel because He has glorified you.

3. [Psalm 34:3] O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together. 

4. [Psalm 45:6-7] Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever, and justice is the scepter of Your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has anointed you above your companions with the oil of joy.

1. [Matthew 3:16-17] As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’

16. [2 Peter 1:16-19] For we did not follow cleverly devised fables when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of His majesty. He received honor and glory from God the Father when the voice came to him from the Majestic Glory, saying, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” We ourselves heard this voice that came from heaven when we were with him on the sacred mountain.
