Jul 8, 2019: The Christ-Event

Robert E. Webber

Like the Hebrews, Christians also have a kairos moment that informs and gives meaning to historical sequence. It is the Christ-event—the birth, life, death, resurrection, ascension, and promised return of the Savior. As Christians, we confess that all time has a center. And that center is Jesus Christ who has redeemed all things. From this center, this kairos event in history, the meaning and significance of all time radiates. It is through the remembrance of the Christ-event in worship that we are able to sanctify all time.
