To the Ends of the Earth - Part 1
"And so, we came to Rome"–with those words Luke brings us to the final chapter in Paul’s journey, and an uncertain future. This week on No Falling Word, Liam Goligher will conclude his study of Acts 28. Paul finds himself under house arrest and chained to his Roman guard. The circumstances would discourage most, but he makes full use of the situation to proclaim Christ to all who will listen. In fact, he finds such freedom in his circumstances that, despite his bonds we might ask, “just who is the prisoner?”
If Christians confuse what is true of Jesus Christ as a human being with what is true of the Eternally Divine Son, they make very serious errors indeed. The most obvious is to conﬂate the exaltation of the Son of God from all eternity with the welcome given by the Father to the God-Man Christ Jesus, who redeemed God’s elect through a sacrificial death. So, in these great teachings, a course correction is long overdue, lest we run out of fuel over water. We must adore Jesus Christ our Lord, both fully Son of Man and fully Son of God.
