Should confess (exomologhshtai). First aorist middle subjunctive of exomologeomai with ina for purpose. Lord (Kurio). Peter ( Acts 2:36 ) claimed that God made Christ "Lord." See also 1 Corinthians 8:6 ; 1 Corinthians 12:3 ; Romans 10:9 . Kennedy laments that the term Lord has become one of the most lifeless in the Christian vocabulary, whereas it really declares the true character and dignity of Jesus Christ and "is the basis and the object of worship."
