The apostle Paul received a heavenly revelation of the Lord Jesus on the road to Damascus, and thereafter spoke of the “excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus.” Our Christ is excellent and supremely precious, and even the knowledge of Him is supreme, sweet, and precious.
In Christ in His Excellency Witness Lee opens the biblical revelation of the excellent Christ. As the effulgence of the Godhead, He is transcendent and superior to all things; yet we can still enjoy His unsearchable riches. When we receive of His fullness as grace upon grace, we too can enter into the excellency of the knowledge of Christ and become the overflowing expression of His riches. Through this enjoyment we all will arrive at the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, which is the Body of Christ as God’s unique goal on the earth, and we all will display the excellency of Christ that others also may know Him.
