Mohler delves into the supremacy of Jesus at lecture series
Riverside, Calif. (March 4, 2020) – Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. expounded on the supremacy of Jesus Christ as part of the School of Christian Ministries Lecture Series on March 3.
Mohler is the president and professor of Christian theology at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He is also a columnist, commentator, blogger and author of several books.
Mohler used Colossians chapter 1 as the foundation of his lecture.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together” (Colossians 1:15-17 NASB).
Christians understand Jesus as the one Savior and Mediator between God and humanity, Mohler said.
“Colossians 1 says that Jesus is the one who holds the universe together,” Mohler said. “He who created the world, through whom the Father to His glory created all things…He is holding the entire universe together, He is holding me together right now, and you—and the entire cosmos, and it is safe in His hands.”
Mohler said Colossians also addresses the preeminence of Christ.
“We must affirm the preeminence of Christ. This also implies that He must be first in the church and in the hearts of those who are His own,” Mohler said.
Mohler closed by advocating for a Christ-centered approach to understanding higher education and in developing Christian curriculum.
