Paul's Understanding of Christ as Lord

"Paul’s favourite term for Jesus Christ is ‘Lord’ (Greek Kyrios). But as many have pointed out, what Lord means in practical terms is most clearly seen in Paul’s correlative term slave or servant. To call Christ one’s Lord means to be wholly at his disposal."

Anthony C. Thiselton, The Living Paul: An Introduction to the Apostles Life and Thought (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2009), 38.
