F.F. Bruce – Jesus, The Lord

22 May

To Paul, however (and to other early Christians), the acknowledgment of Jesus as Lord in the highest sense which that title can bear was far from being the result of a linguistic accident; it was far, too, from being but an ex officio designation of the Messiah. It was the most adequate term for expressing what he (and his fellow-believers) had come to understand and appreciate of Jesus’ person and achievement and his present decisive role in the outworking of God’s purpose of blessing for the universe.
