The Head of the New Humanity
A Sermon on John 1:50-51
Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (ESV)
Our attention is called to something of great importance and significance; Adam; the source of human life; Jesus; the one who was promised; the second Adam; the head of a new humanity; Jesus not only for the Jews.
