The four gospels are gospel, not the law of Moses. Jesus lived under the law, but he taught looking toward the days of the church-kingdom. His examples may be grounded in Jewish life, but his principles are thoroughly Christian.

Christ as Lord is both…

Christ as Lord is both positional and functional. Not only was he exalted as Lord in glory, but he functions as the final authority. So the confession “Jesus is Lord” means that a person must not only acknowledge his position, but respect his function by submitting to his commands. So for him to be our Lord and Savior, it must be in this order.

The man without a place…

The man without a place came to give us one. “Jesus said to him, ‘Foxes have dens, and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head'” Matthew 8.20.

Jesus is inflammatory. He demands decision. He brings division and suffering, all for the kingdom of God and the salvation of man. “I have come to bring fire on the earth—and how I wish it were already kindled!” Lk 12.49.

If we go to the Scriptures and do not see Jesus, we have missed the purpose of their testimony. Just like others have done. Jesus himself said, “You study the scriptures thoroughly because you think in them you possess eternal life, and it is these same scriptures that testify about me, but you are not willing to come to me so that you may have life” Jn 5.39-40.
