The Lord Jesus Christ dominates the Scriptures as the sun dominates our solar system. As the Eternal Son, He acts through creation and history. As the virgin’s Son, He joins the stream of our race, the tributary destined to unite the currents of Jew and Gentile, and to divide our river into two courses: one flowing with ever-increasing depth to the ocean of everlasting love; the other flowing darkly…to be swallowed up at last in the Saharan sands of the second death…No article, no book, no library, no university can contain the infinite treasure of the revelation of God in His Son…for He is altogether lovely; grace has been poured into His lips—they are like lilies dropping sweet-smelling myrrh (Song of Sol 5:13). His words contain all the music of David’s harp, all the wisdom of Solomon, the eloquence of Isaiah, and the pathos of Jeremiah. “Never man spake like this Man” (Jn 7:46) for no man so prayed, worked, loved, suffered, died and overcame.—A.C.
