Jesus Our Lord
24 Portraits of Christ Throughout Scripture
Jesus is Lord has been traditionally understood as one of the oldest and most basic Christian statements of faith. Unlike many other terms given to Jesus (i.e., Son of God), however, the term Lord is relatively common and its meaning is sometimes lost on the modern reader. What does lordship involve? What does it mean for us? Why does the Bible so frequently use this title for Jesus?
Jesus Our Lord shows readers how we are never far from encountering the lordship of Christ in the Scriptures. Respected teacher John Phillips explores how the Bible provides a window through which we encounter Jesus our Lord, and discusses the many biblical events, stories, and prophecies that reflect his lordship. Meditating on these themes, lay readers, pastors, and teachers will better understand the lordship of Christ.
Jesus Our Lord is a companion volume to Phillipss The View from Mount Calvary, which looks at the Bibles many presentations of Jesus sacrificial death.
"Dr. Phillips has the rare gift of bringing diverse Scripture passages together so that we see beautiful patterns in Scripture and as a result, better understand the big picture. He boldly proclaims Jesus Christ and magnifies Him as the only Savior of the world."
