Revelation of Jesus Christ
The Nature, the Battle and the Victory of the Inheritance of Jesus Christ
Revelation of Jesus Christ. That is to be the object of our occupation at this time and while it will come to us through the book which bears that name, it is not the book, as such, that we are to study but that central, inclusive, underlying theme - revelation of Jesus Christ. We can drop out the article and say 'revelation of Jesus Christ'.
A subtitle might be:
The Nature, the Battle and the Victory of the Inheritance of Jesus Christ.
The one, great, triumphant cry which arises at a certain point in the procedure recorded here is 'now is come the Kingdom'. And in that phrase everything that is in this book is governed: His inheritance, His kingdom, His reign, His rights; His everything. That is the governing thing in the whole book. It is a revelation of Jesus Christ in that sense. We hardly begin to read the book without the consciousness breaking upon us that we are moving into battle - terrific battle - battle with many aspects. But with all the aspects of the battle, one issue: His Kingdom.
