  • CHIEF SHEPHERD - Christ, the Chief Shepherd

1Pe 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

  • CHILDREN - The attitude of Christ toward Children

Gentle
Isa 40:11 He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young.

Promises a reward for kindness to
Mt 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Used a child as an example
Mt 18:2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

Declared that a childlike spirit is absolutely essential in religion
Mt 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Mt 18:4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Warned against despising
Mt 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven.

Commands reception of
Mr 9:37 Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

Said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me"
Mr 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Observed the children at play
Mt 11:16 But whereunto shall I liken this generation? It is like unto children sitting in the markets, and calling unto their fellows,

Commanded that they should be fed spiritual food
Joh 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.

  • CHRIST OF GOD - Lord Jesus, the Christ of God

Lu 9:20 He said unto them, But whom say ye that I am? Peter answering said, The Christ of God.

Christ
Anointed, the Greek translation of the Hebrew word rendered "Messiah" (q.v.), the official title of our Lord, occurring five hundred and fourteen times in the New Testament. It denotes that he was anointed or consecrated to his great redemptive work as Prophet, Priest, and King of his people. He is Jesus the Christ #Ac 17:3 18:5 Mt 22:42 the Anointed One. He is thus spoken of by Isaiah #Isa 61:1 and by Daniel #Da 9:24-26 who styles him "Messiah the Prince." The Messiah is the same person as "the seed of the woman" #Ge 3:15 "the seed of Abraham" #Ge 22:18 the "Prophet like unto Moses" #De 18:15 "the priest after the order of Melchizedek" #Ps 110:4 "the rod out of the stem of Jesse" #Isa 11:1,10 the "Immanuel," the virgin's son #Isa 7:14 "the branch of Jehovah" #Isa 4:2 and "the messenger of the covenant" #Mal 3:1 This is he "of whom Moses in the law and the prophets did write." The Old Testament Scripture is full of prophetic declarations regarding the Great Deliverer and the work he was to accomplish. Jesus the Christ is Jesus the Great Deliverer, the Anointed One, the Saviour of men. This name denotes that Jesus was divinely appointed, commissioned, and accredited as the Saviour of men #Heb 5:4 #Isa 11:2-4 49:6 Joh 5:37 Ac 2:22 To believe that "Jesus is the Christ" is to believe that he is the Anointed, the Messiah of the prophets, the Saviour sent of God, that he was, in a word, what he claimed to be. This is to believe the gospel, by the faith of which alone men can be brought unto God. That Jesus is the Christ is the testimony of God, and the faith of this constitutes a Christian #1Co 12:3 1Jo 5:1
