The other day, I was reflecting on NT Theology and the different titles of Jesus that are central to NT Theology. It was very difficult to determine what could be my favorite Christological title for Jesus Christ. However, I think I determined it.
As God in the flesh, his sacrifice was a divine transaction that brought finality (cf. John 19:30; Rom. 5:20-21; Heb. 7-10). And because of his sacrifice as the "Lamb of God," gospel followers of Jesus Christ obtain salvation. I looked back on this Christological title and thought to myself, "Since Jesus is described as the Lamb of God, his substitutionary work enables me, by grace through faith in the gospel, to become a new creation, have a new life, look forward to a new heavens & earth, and look forward to singing a new song declaring, "Worthy is the Lamb!" Indeed, this is why I love this Christological title so much. Amen!
