In this second of two parts, the topic of the formation of sacred space in Christ is considered in terms of Jesus being the cornerstone and foundation of God's true sanctuary. As Christ is the destroyer of the earthly, symbolic sanctuary and the builder of the final, spiritual sanctuary, so He is building God's true dwelling upon Himself as its foundation. This truth was central to the messianic witness of the prophets and is explicitly affirmed by the writers of the New Testament.
Great Sermon! Gold, gold, gold. I started listening to your site when I was leading a Bible Study in Genesis and the usual literal exegesis which I have followed no longer seem to satisfy what seemed to be there in the text. At last after listening to your talks the depth of the first creation started to dawn , let alone the unity of the Scriptures and the salvation history has taken a much richer foothold in my life. I am about a third way through your talks. Thanks so much and I pray others will open up this site and be thrilled the great richness that is there. I have listened to about a third of them so far.
