Why Do Christians call Jesus Lord?

Extracts from this document...


Re Coursework "Why Do Christians call Jesus Lord?" Christians and followers of Jesus have called him lord for many reasons. The dictionary definition of lord is "A man of high rank in a feudal society or in one that retains feudal forms and institutions, especially: A king. A territorial agnate. The proprietor of a manor." This clearly shows that to be called lord, you either needed to be a great man or you needed to be a land owner.
