Just a man like you and me. Jesus, son of man. John 1:14, “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.” That is the incarnation of Christ. The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns says “Jesus became a human being in order to identify with us in our struggles (Heb. 2:17) and, more importantly, so that He could die on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins (Philippians 2:5-11).” Hypostatic union is the theological term that refers to Jesus being fully God and fully man. If you are interested, that is how to look online for more information. It is over my head; I believe it because the Bible teaches it. I put that along with all the other stuff I don’t understand about God! But that is the reason for Christmas! I guess it was scene one for the story of our salvation. JESUS is OUR reason for the season, but WE are HIS reason for the season!
MERRY CHRISTMAS, DEAR ONES!
HE came that HE might die that WE might live!
