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 2 of A General Sketch of the New Testament in the Light of Christ and the Church covers the Epistles from Romans through Philemon. These books provide a complete definition and explanation of the Body of the universal man. The first group of nine Epistles portrays the nature, life, function, responsibility, and consummation of the Body of Christ, revealing how the divine life within us grows, works, and enables us to function in the Body. The next group of four Epistles provides healthy teaching concerning the living, practice, and exercise of the church life.
