Luke 2:7, 34-35
The Superficiality of the world.
The Threatening nature of His truth.
The Substitutionary Character of His work.
Jesus is sitting at the right hand of God. And in His right hand He held the seven stars which were symbolic of the seven churches in the seven largest cities in the ancient world. And that’s what they are in his right hand, they’re kind of play things to Him, toy things to Him. These immense cities that we would say, “Oh, look how big they are. Look how mighty they are.” They’re all seven of them sitting in His right hand. They’re like a yo-yo to Him. And so it says in this one, to further this illustration of the majesty of God dwelling in Jesus, it says He shone like the sun at full strength.
