Sunday School Today: Christ’s Uniqueness

One of the foundational truths of the Christian faith is that Jesus Christ is truly God and that He came into the world as a man through the miracle of a virgin birth. The uniqueness of His virgin birth was the exception to everyone else’s birth through the Adamic or sin nature (Romans 5:12). As a man, Christ was absolutely without sin (John 8:46; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15). His sinless life and His bodily resurrection from the dead confirm these truths.

The cross is the fundamental truth of the revealed Word of God. By the cross we refer to not the object itself, but the sacrifice that Jesus Christ made. From the Tabernacle in the wilderness throughout the Old Testament, the Word of God is filled with symbols of Christ and His crucifixion. He is the Passover Lamb of Exodus 12 and the Brazen Serpent of Numbers 21 and John 3:14-15. He is the Shepherd of Psalm 23 and the Smitten Shepherd of Zechariah 13:6-7. He is the Suffering Savior of Isaiah 53 and the King of Glory of Psalm 24:9-10.
