Introduction to Christology- Part 3

Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier

As we discuss Christology, we mediate upon the person and work of Christ.  He has come to do what humanity cannot do and to do what only God can do, that is, defeat Satan.  Christ is not an created angelic being sent to fight against a created fallen angelic being.  The author of the letter to the Hebrews writes, “For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”? Or again, “I will be to him a father, and he shall be to me a son”? And again, when he brings the firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”” (Hebrews 1:5–6, ESV)  To be worshiped by all the angels, Christ Himself is not a created angel.  He is to be worshiped and honored equally with the Father.  Not only is He coequal with the Father, but He is also coessential with the Father.  He is the begotten Son of the Father, that is, of the same divine substance as the Father.  He is God of God.  He is begotten and not made.  He is True God.  As True God, He alone can overcome and defeat the devil and live.  “Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.” (Hebrews 2:14–15, ESV)  He came to destroy the devil and deliver humanity from slavery to sin.  He alone can set us free.

  1. Pastor,
    I love this series on Christology and I love it when you’re on Issues Etc. God has given you a wonderful gift of teaching. Not every church is as fortunate as yours is to have such a pastor.
    Thank you for putting your work on the web for the rest of us.
    Your friend in Christ,
    Barbara

    This is the best preaching I have heard. You preached about introduction to christology and it revived me. Unfortunately I do not get this kind of preaching at my church here. Is it possible for you to send me part 1&2? I heard only part3.
