That which authoritatively reveals the status of God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ defines their relationship to the universe by means of two connectives: All is out of God, and, all is through our Lord. Hence we read, “For us there is one God, the Father, out of Whom all is, and we for Him, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through Whom all is, and we through Him” (1 Cor.8:6). The contrast here is sharp and clear. It is the key to the part played by Christ in the course of the eons. Nothing originates out of Him or consummates into Him, though He is the Origin and the Consummation. All comes through Him, from the beginning to the end. CHRIST AND DEITY begins with this thesis and studies all its ramifications in depth.
