The classic article of faith of Jesus Christ sitting at the right hand of God is elucidated and evaluated in light of the relevant biblical data, with special attention to the Old Testament. It is argued that the concept of Jesus Christ as God’s only intimate, representative, and co-regent, is intended to show God’s entering in a new relation with man and world. By giving Jesus Christ a seat at his right hand God has extended himself in a new form to provide man with a very special intercessor. In this way he turned the care for and the protection of his people into a task by itself, promoted by a special minister of his government. It became part of a new strategy in his battle against chaos from the beginning, aimed at the control of and the final victory over the powers who are after man’s life and the world’s destruction.
