In this session, David explores how Christ’s supremacy is eternally rooted in his deity, his nature, his character, as well as his Trinitarian existence as the Son of the Father.
Jesus is the embodiment and fulfillment of all the purposes, prophecies and promises of Scripture. In Christ we see the fullest display of God’s holiness, love, righteousness, justice, compassion – as well as God’s commitment to the reclamation of His whole creation along with all who trust in him.
Jesus said, “He who has seen me has seen the Father” (John 14). Colossians 1 tells us, “Christ is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation….” There’s nothing God wants to reveal to us about himself beyond who Jesus is. It’s all to be seen in Christ supreme.

Video 2:5 – How does Christ sum up Scripture?
"Then the two told what had happened on the way, and how Jesus was recognized by them when he broke the bread. While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, 'Peace be with you.' They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost." - Luke 24:35-37
