who is Jesus

I’m posting a series of essays as preparation for my upcoming ordination council. You can find these at http://bit.ly/1ps22J

Here is an excerpt from “who is Jesus and why does it matter?”

the king thing? We have no idea at all, even though Christ as sovereign Lord is where an understanding of who Jesus is must lead us in the end. This isn’t about Queen Elizabeth and Prince Henry, bound by Parliament and centuries of human reason and regulation. We’re talking Darius, with power of life and death, as less than a choir boy. Ultimately Jesus is the King (Revelation 17:14, 19:16) before whom the heavens and the earth will melt.
