Jesus: Lord & Son of Man

The titles of Jesus have impact on our daily living. They equip us with truth and remind us of Jesus’ role, authority, and how we relate to him.

Jesus is Lord

Greek word for Lord: kurios

One of the foundational principles of the Roman Empire, from Augustus on, was that salvation was brought to the people by Caesar. The message on their coins was that salvation is only to be found in Augustus, and “there is no other name given to men in which they can be saved” (Stauffer, Christ and the Caesars, p. 88). This gives a new contextual meaning to Peter’s bold declaration about Jesus Christ: “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). If Caesar is Lord, follow him. If Christ is Lord, then follow Him. – Douglas Wilson

Who’s image is on the coin? Caesars. But who’s image is on us? God’s. We are made in God’s image, and therefore we belong to God. Let us render to God what belongs to Him.

Son of Man

When Jesus refers to himself as the Son of Man, He is actually identifying himself as a heavenly authority – he is from God, he has come to take dominion – an everlasting dominion – a dominion that will not pass away or be destroyed, and he will be served.

Proving Faithful

Be students of God and His World.

Who is teaching you? Who is teaching your children? What are our sources? Are we letting first the word of God dwell in us richly? Are we learning things like history and science from a worldview that exalts God as Creator and Jesus as King?

Lets be students of God – my best friend used to pray Isaiah 50:4 that says: “The Lord GOD has given me the tongue of those who are taught, that I may know how to sustain with a word him who is weary. Morning by morning he awakens; he awakens my ear to hear as those who are taught.”
