Revealing Jesus Christ As “Saviour And Lord”
Topic :The Testimony Of Jesus Christ: Made A Man Like Unto Us
In Lesson 3(C), the aim of the study was to highlight Jesus, the Lord revealed as the Son of Man. We saw how the Lord Jesus, by putting on human nature, without sin, and overcoming all temptations that we are subjected to, overcame the devil, and becomes our Redeemer and our High Priest.
(Hebrews 4:14-16): “ Seeing then that we have a great high priest that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God let us hold fast our profession. For we have not a high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
