Alan Hirsch intro video at the Verge Conference in Austin, Texas.
The Incarnation does not alter the fundamental, practical God-centered nature of the scriptures; rather it restructures it around Jesus Christ. Jesus becomes the focus point in our relationship to God. Jesus not only initiates the new covenant, he is the New Covenant. "Jesus is Lord" is the covenant claim of God over our lives—the unshakable center of the Christian creed and confession.
At its very heart, Christianity is a Jesus movement, one that seeks to consistently embody the life, spirituality, and mission of its Founder. "Jesus is Lord" is about our becoming like Jesus our Lord and Founder. This confession lies at the epicenter of the church's task. In order to recover the ethos of authentic Christianity, we need to refocus our attention back to the Root and recalibrate ourselves around Jesus. The great truth of our faith is that Jesus is Lord! But it is also true that it is Jesus who is Lord. The Jesus of the Bible defines our faith. We must strive to know him as he reveals himself to us.
