The Architect

The Architect

Passage: Revelation 1

Speaker: Dr. Steven Laufer

Series: Interior Design

Category: Sunday Sermons

Keywords: jesus, salvation, the trinity

The first chapter of Revelation introduces the key characters for the entire book: namely the Church and God. In the introduction of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are mentioned along with the Father as the voice, or inspiration, behind John’s letter. But the vision of the Son of Man walking among the lampstands in vv. 12-18 is the most vibrant image and most theologically significant statement about this key character in the chapter. Jesus, who will be the co-lead in the story of the church’s history, is one full of power, wisdom, and majesty worthy of being feared, but faithful to those who belong to him.
