Series: Christian Belief And The Modern World
Stuart Briscoe

"When (the Creed) called God 'Maker of Heaven and Earth' it parted company with Hinduism and Eastern faiths generally; now by calling Jesus Christ God's only Son, it parts company with Judaism and Islam and stands quite alone." J.I. Packer

A. The name of Jesus. Matthew 1:18-25
