"All Concepts of Reality that Ignore Jesus Christ Are Abstractions"

In his terrific biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Eric Metaxas quotes from Bonhoeffer's Ethics:
In Jesus Christ the reality of God has entered into the reality of this world. The place where the questions about the reality of God and about the reality of the world are answered at the same time is characterized solely by the name: Jesus Christ. God and the world are enclosed in this name ... we cannot speak rightly of either God or the world without speaking of Jesus Christ. All concepts of reality that ignore Jesus Christ are abstractions.
Jesus is Lord over all.
