Jesus Christ Is Totally Human
Case 8: Jesus Christ
Is Jesus Christ truly human?
Jesus Christ is the only perfect Man. He became truly human in every way, except that He never sinned. Galatians 4:4 – But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law.
This Truth Makes
The Bible teaches that Christ was born of a woman; He was human. Jesus had emotions like we do. He felt love, anger, hunger and thirst. Jesus even died like humans do. He was totally human. He was also totally God. We cannot understand how that is true; but it is true, because it is what the Bible teaches.
In Jewish tradition, a father would choose the time when his son was ready to be considered an adult. The Heavenly Father chose the time for His Son to come to Earth and save people from their sins. God knew when “the fullness of time” had come, and He sent His Son.
Some interesting things were happening when Christ came to Earth. The Romans were keeping peace and building roads that helped news travel quickly. The Greeks had provided a very descriptive language that was being used by most of the world at that time. And the Jews had been looking forward to a Savior for hundreds of years. God worked through men to prepare all the details for the arrival of His Son. A lot of Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled miraculously when each of those details came together.
The Bible says that God sent forth His Son. Someone who is “sent” has a purpose – to do the will of the “sender.” Jesus Christ was sent by God the Father as a representative to carry out the Father’s will and to reveal the Father to the world. Jesus showed to us what God is like more than any other person ever had or ever will. God has preserved the story of Christ in the Bible so that we might believe and know Him ourselves.
