The Uniqueness Of Christ (8)

The uniqueness of our Lord Jesus Christ is indicated early in His life when, at the age of twelve, He speaks these wonderful words, ‘Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s house?’ (Luke 2:49). Hearing these words, we catch a glimpse of Jesus’ unique relationship with God the Father. From there, we look back and notice earlier indications of the unique place held by Jesus in God’s plan of salvation - the divine protection of the child and the divine victory over the child’s enemies (Matthew 2:13,20). When Jesus sets out on His public ministry, it becomes clear why His life was preserved. Jesus is a special Person - ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased’ (Matthew 3:17). He has a special purpose - He is ‘the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world’ (John 1:29).
