The Only Perfect Man: The Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ

From the Back Cover

Jesus Christ embodies God’s glory and fullness. More than that, he is the only perfect man who has ever lived. But whereas his perfection is often taken for granted and regarded as a given, on the contrary it is a most stupendous achievement unparalleled in salvation history, for it was as a true man and not the trinitarian “God-man” that Jesus became perfect through suffering, obedience, and God’s indwelling. He was consequently exalted to God’s right hand as His supreme plenipotentiary, and given all authority in heaven and on earth. Hence the subtitle of the book, “The Glory of God in the Face of Jesus Christ” (2Cor.4:6).

This book is exegetical yet also devotional and inspirational.

Some of the topics discussed: • Yahweh the only true God • The historical roots of trinitarianism • Jesus of the Bible versus Jesus of trinitarianism • The four pillars of trinitarianism (John 1, Colossians 1, Hebrews 1, Revelation 1) • Jesus as the “form of God” in Philippians 2 • The name above all names given to Jesus • Jesus’ perfection as a model and inspiration to God’s people • God’s glory manifested in Jesus Christ, the perfect image of God.
