The New Testament reveals the history, definition, and consummation of a marvelous, universal man, composed of Christ as the Head and the church as His Body. In A General Sketch of the New Testament in the Light of Christ and the Church, Witness Lee provides a simple and clear view of Christ and the church from the Gospels through the book of Revelation.
Part 1 of A General Sketch of the New Testament in the Light of Christ and the Church covers the Gospels and the Acts. The Gospels show that Christ is the unique God-man who came and announced the kingdom of the heavens and who met every man’s need. He lived the human life according to the divine life, and through His death, resurrection, and ascension, He imparted this life into man and brought man into God. The Acts show that all of the redeemed and regenerated believers have become the corporate duplication and reproduction of Christ, who now lives and moves in His Body.
