“The soul is lifted up by the contemplation of the glory of God and of his only begotten Son,” writes R. C. Sproul. “It is Christ in his glory who is the object of our worship and adoration. As Christians we join the communion of saints and the host of heaven in lifting up praise and honor to him.”

During his earthly life and ministry, Jesus experienced humiliation and suffering. “His humanity served as a veil that concealed the splendor of his deity,” Sproul continues. “Yet there were moments when his glory shone through.” These moments become the focus of The Glory of Christ.

From the angels’ revelation of Jesus’ glory to the shepherds outside Bethlehem, to Jesus’ life-changing revelation of his glory to Paul on the Damascus Road, Sproul guides us to a deeper understanding of Christ’s glory. Paul said to King Agrippa about his conversion experience, “I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven.” Sproul concludes: “This is the statement every Christian longs to make at the end of his life. This is the proper response to the manifestation of the glory of Christ.”
