The early church had a fitting nickname. “The Way” spoke the message of Jesus as “not one among many ways to God but the only way to God,”[1] being called as such “because of its insistence upon this point (Acts 9:2; 19:9, 23).”[2] In Acts, Peter proclaims the message for which the church was known: “Salvation exists in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

King Solomon, did you hear about the Messiah being called the Lord of the Sabbath who is greater than the temple, the embodiment of it (Matthew 12:6)? Did you hear, following His perfect sacrifice, of God intending to dwell with man, announced with a loud voice (Revelation 21:3)—a declaration matched to man’s innermost desire? Did you know of the God-Man who will sit on Jerusalem’s throne (Luke 1:32-33)? And did you know that the kingdom of the world will become the kingdom of our Lord, who will reign forever and ever (Revelation 11:15)?
