The LORD Jesus Christ, Who is He? by Scott Price

in #christian-trail3 years ago (edited)

"Jesus asked them, saying, What do you think of Christ?" Mat 22:41-42

The Eternal Son of God, the second Person of the Trinity, came to fulfill the Covenant of Grace by descending down from His Heavenly throne to take on sinless human flesh and nature in His Holy Incarnation, the Word made flesh.

He was born of a woman, born under the Law, to keep it, fulfill it, magnify it and make it honorable. He obeyed perfectly in every jot and tittle with His perfect deeds, words, thoughts, motives and a perfect will. He always pleases His Father.

He did all this, not as a private Person, but as a Representative and Substitute of the Elect who were chosen in Christ from the foundation of the world.

He went to the cross of Calvary to take on sin by through the means of imputation. God the Father put the sin of the elect to the account of Christ and the Lord Jesus Christ became legally responsible and guilty for their sin. He took the punishment for the penalty of their sin until He fully satisfied God's Law and justice through the poured out wrath of God unmixed with mercy.

When He did all His Father required in punishment the He cried with a loud voice; "It is finished". He bowed His head and laid down His life in death as a complete and final sacrifice to His Father.

He was buried in a borrowed tomb and He raised from the dead on the third day as prophesied in the Scripture. Later, He ascended and was exalted to the highest position anywhere then, now and forever in this world or the world to come. He reigns victorious by virtue of His accomplished Redemption and His defeat of death, crushing the head of the Serpent as promised in Gen 3:15. He now lives to still do His work as the Great High Priest, praying for all His people, the elect.
