God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ
Then I explained how Jesus was both God and man though different from the Father based on John 20,17 and 20,27, especially of Thomas' confession "My Lord and my God." You won't find a higher Christology than that. I spoke about how Jesus Christ was man, born of Mary and the Son of God conceived by the Holy Spirit. I ended by quoting Colossians about the fulness of God dwelling in Jesus and that it pleased the Father that the fulness of the Godhead dwells bodily in Christ. Colossians also exhibits a high Christology like John's Gospel. The 150 secondary students from 3 main Secondary Schools listened attentively. There was no chatting at the back as I heard 2 weeks ago, but only a few asked for my slides after service. And also a few asked whether there was a recording and yes, a deacon recorded the sermon and members can access it online soon.
