The Christian: A Citizen

We have been looking at a question, “What is a Christian?”, and we have been answering that question by looking at what the Bible, particularly the New Testament, has to say in answer to the question “What is a Christian?” We began by saying that a Christian is a Christian, even though that term is hardly used in the New Testament. It only occurs in two or three places in the New Testament, and in each place it is used in a derogatory (disrespectful, critical) sense. It was a term of abuse (‘little Christs’, literally), by detractors of the gospel in the first century.

The Christian: A Son

We are going to continue in this series as to What is a Christian? And we have looked at various answers to that. The Christian is a ‘Christian’ – actually the least used term in the New Testament; it is only used on two or three occasions in the New Testament. We have considered such things as that a Christian is a servant, or perhaps more in reference to the New Testament itself, a slave – someone whose life is yielded entirely, without reserve, to a master; namely, the Lord Jesus Christ.
