Jesus is Lord not only of the Church but of the world, not only in the religious life but in all life, not merely over some peoples but over all peoples. He is not just my savior, but the savior of the world. We have no way in which to demonstrate the truth of the claim by reference to some supposedly more ultimate realities. If it is true, it is true for all and must not be concealed from any. But we cannot yet know what its truth means until the Lordship of Jesus has been manifested in the lives of all peoples and in all sectors of human living.
