““To whom then will you liken Me That I would be his equal?” says the Holy One.” Isaiah 40:25
Jesus is unique and incomparable. He is supreme and matchless. The truth about Jesus is timeless and unchanging and remains unshackled by the designations of centuries or nations. Those who dwelt in Saharan Africa in the 13th century and Iranians of the 21st century must believe and confess the same truths about the same Person in order to be born again and inherit His kingdom.
Only with our anchor firmly set in depths of the One who is the same yesterday, today, and forever can we broach questions of how to bear witness of Him in the midst of the ever changing surface of the sea of nations. Although Jesus does not change, the powerful truth of who He is will not be felt unless it is communicated in a way that can be understood. This understanding might lead to glad acceptance or fierce rejection, but neither outcome is possible without it.
This section explores the challenges of proclaiming undiluted theological realities in a way that can penetrate the barriers of language, culture, and opposing belief systems. Jesus created all the nations, and we must seek Him for wisdom on how to make His glory known to them.
