The Excellency of Christ

Preached as a sacrament service sermon in August 1736 and later included as the fifth and final sermon in Discourses on Various Important Subjects, “The Excellency of Christ” is based upon Revelation 5:5-6 where Christ is described as both the Lion of the tribe of Judah and the Lamb slain. Jonathan Edwards focuses on how in Jesus Christ we find the “admirable conjunction of diverse excellencies.”
