Reference: Corner Stone
One of the designations of Christ. In Isa 28:16, the Lord God lays in Zion "for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste." This is quoted in 1Pe 2:6. In 1Co 3:11 we are told "other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ;" and in Eph 2:20 we read "Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone." Thus the Lord Jesus is the chief corner stone that binds all together, and is the foundation upon which all rests. In addition to this, as the stone which the Jewish builders rejected, Christ has become the head stone of the corner. As well as being the foundation He must have the highest place. "This is Jehovah's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes." Ps 118:22-23; Zec 4:7; Mt 21:42; 1Pe 2:7.
