Jesus is the Lord - ‘In the beginning … the Word was God’ (John 1:1). He is the Christ, the fulfilment of the Old Testament prophecies. The prophets looked forward to His coming. The apostles proclaimed ‘the good news’ - the Christ has come. The prophets and apostles speak with one voice concerning ‘the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glory’ (1 Peter 1:10-12). Together, they declare to us the ‘good news’ of our salvation - ‘Jesus … will save His people from their sins’ (Luke 2:10; Matthew 1:21).
