James 4:6b- Christological focus
->In commenting on my last post concerning James 4:6b, Baptist pastor Jeff Richard Young showed an understanding of this Christ-centered understanding of Scripture by immediately referring me to Jesus' teaching in Matthew 5:3-5 as well as Mary's song concerning her being chosen as the vessel of the incarnation as recorded in Luke chapter one. Upon further study (at least at this time) I plan to focus the specifically Christological portion of my teaching concerning James 4:6b on the doctrine Jesus presents in Matthew 5:3 ("Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.),
on the parable of Jesus about the Pharisee and the tax collector recorded in Luke 18:9-14, and on the words of the Apostle concerning the humiliation of Christ on our behalf found in Philippians 2:5-11. Again, if anyone has any insight into the relationship of these passages to one another, your comments would be greatly appreciated.
