Jesus as Lord and Christ
In today's Christianity, "Christ" has become a synonym for "Jesus", and "Lord" has become a synonym for "master". But for the early church, Lord and Christ had significant meaning.
In this teaching, Stephen Venable analyzes Peter's sermon in Acts 2. By His resurrection, Jesus was confirmed to be the Christ, the anointed king who would sit on David's throne in Jerusalem. By His ascension, Jesus was confirmed to be the Lord, the Creator and Sustainer of all things, because He took His seat on God's throne at His right hand.
The significance of this truth cannot be overstated or underemphasized for our proclamation of the gospel and simply for who Jesus is.
This teaching was given at onething 2011 in Kansas City.
