Chief Shepherd, (1Pet.5:4)
Rose of Sharon, (S. of S. 2:1)
Image of God, (2Cor.4:4)
Son of God (Rom.1:4)
Jesus Christ, the Chief Shepherd, is unlike the hired man that would run away in the face of danger. He stands by you through thick and thin, from the beginning to the end, even laying down his life for you. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John15:13), John 10
He is the Holy One of Israel, the Holy Lamb of God slain from the foundation of the world, to take a way the sin of this world, your sin and my sin. He is pure, unblemished, innocent; and what the blood bulls and goats could not do, His holy blood was able to do- reconciling you and I to the Father.
He is the sweet Rose of Sharon, come to spread His wonderful disarming endearing aroma on your stench and my stench making acceptable, the repugnant, the enemy, the beloved and friend; the pungent, a sweet fragrance.
He is the express image of God, His exact representation, the brightness of His gloryHeb1:3) God with the fullness of God, pre-eminent, All-powerful, All-knowing, Ever –present, before al things (Col.1:15-17) immanent, invisible yet invincible, faithful and true, the Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, extra-ordinarily patient and abundant in goodness and in truth. (Ex34:6, Heb 1:3)
As God the son, He does what He sees His Father do. He was humble and obedient to the Father, laying down His glory and majesty and coming down to take a body, limiting Himself, taking our sins and dying for us. (Phil2:5-11)
He is the Master Teacher who did not teach like the Pharisees but taught as One who had authority. Demons trembled at His Word.
