    We believe that holy men of God spake and wrote as they were moved by the Holy Ghost [cf. 2 Peter ]. The Holy Spirit inspired it. Men wrote it. It is God’s Book, given to us through men. Like Christ, it is both divine and human. (George Henry Gerberding, Lutheran Fundamentals [Rock Island, Illinois: Augustana Book Concern, ], p. 63). This study presents Jesus Christ as He is—the unique Son of God who came to Earth, both fully God and fully human. The lessons take us from the preincarnate Christ of eternity to the prophecies of the Old Testament, then to His birth, life, ministry, death, resurrection, and ascension. Although this study focuses.

      God is the Father, while Jesus, a man, is the Christ. Notice also that Jesus is not only the Christ, he is God’s Christ, thus further emphasizing their distinction. In addition, we are told at least twenty times in Scripture that Jesus has a God. For instance. The Poem of the Man-God (Italian title: Il Poema dell'Uomo-Dio) is a multi-volume book of about five thousand pages on the life of Jesus Christ written by Maria current editions of the book bear the title The Gospel as Revealed to Me.. The book was first published in Italian in and has since been translated into 10 languages and is available worldwide.

      This book’s powerful truth is that the incarnation of Jesus Christ really matters because Jesus was fully God and fully man. Jesus experienced all the heart-ache we experience, and yet did not doubt God, become self-sufficient, or self-righteous but rather trusted God and the resources He supplies through the promises of His Word. One of the most influential twentieth-century studies on the doctrine of Christ, this highly acclaimed work demonstrates Pannenberg's belief that at the heart of every Christian theology lies its teaching about Jesus Christ. The second edition, available for the first time in paperback, contains an Afterword in which the author reviews other theologians' responses to his 5/5(1).

Was Christ both God and man? by John Roach Straton Download PDF EPUB FB2

Christ both God and man. Being the substance of a sermon preached,at Trinity Church in the Minories. By the Rev. Henry Mead Christ both God and man. Wherefore that holy thing which is born of thee shall be called the Son of God." Also in the first Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians: "The first man is of the mud of the earth; the second man is from heaven.

As was he from the soil, such are they also that are of the earth; and as is the heavenly, such also are the heavenly. Jesus Christ--True God and True Man is an excellent example of why Vatican II was called by Pope John XXIII.

The image of Jesus presented in this anachronistic examination of the divinity and humanity of Jesus Christ is a throwback to the 19th century. Fr/5(3).

Before there was a world, before there were planets, before there was light, before there was matter, there was Jesus. Coequal, coeternal, and coexistent with the Father and the Holy Spirit, Jesus was with God—and He was God.

John –2 tells us, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Jesus is the most important person who has ever lived since he is the Savior, God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully divine and fully man. In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human.

Jesus is not half-human and half-divine. Rather, He is Theanthropos, the God-man. The Lord Jesus Christ is one eternally divine Person who will forever possess two distinct yet inseparable natures: one divine and one human. Recommended Resource: The Moody Handbook of Theology by Paul Enns.

Jesus has two natures — God and man. The first truth we need to understand is that Jesus is one Person who has two natures: a divine nature and a human nature.

In other words, Jesus is both God and man. We will look at each nature accordingly. Jesus Is God. Although he is God and human, yet Christ is not two, but one. He is one, however, not by his divinity being turned into flesh, but by God's taking humanity to himself.

He is one, certainly not by the blending of his essence, but by the unity of his person. 12 Some people believe that Jesus and God are the same person. But that’s not what the Bible teaches. The Bible says that Jesus was created, which means that Jesus had a beginning. But Jehovah, who created all things, had no beginning.

(Psalm ) As God’s Son, Jesus never thought of trying to be God. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, Philippians ESV / 59 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful But made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.

So far, we’ve established that Jesus was both God and man. But how does this all work together. As you can imagine, the early church had lots of disputes over how to synthesize all of the biblical data.

In the end, the church agreed at the Council of Chalcedon (AD ), that Jesus was one person who subsisted in two natures. Some, however would answer with a no, one can not be both man and God.

This paper will present the Scriptural proof that Jesus Christ is both Man and God. There is no question that Christ was, while on earth, fully Man. The question that we will study in this paper is whether He was also fully God. The addition of the human nature to the divine nature is Jesus, the God-man.

This is the hypostatic union, Jesus Christ, one Person, fully God and fully man. Jesus’ two natures, human and divine, are inseparable. Jesus will forever be the God-man, fully God and fully human, two distinct natures in one Person. But if Christ did teach or believe error, that denies His full deity, for God only speaks the truth.

It is important to be well-grounded in our understanding of Christ so that we can rightly affirm both His full humanity and full deity. If He is not both truly man and truly God. One of the dogmas common to almost all Christian churches is that which maintains that Jesus was both true God and true man.

Yet, paradoxically, there are few doctrines that have been so bitterly contested over the centuries and remain a bone of contention among theologians even today. In this book, Father Raymond Brown, one of America's best known Scripture scholars. Was Christ both God and man.

New York: Doran, (OCoLC) Named Person: Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ. Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: John Roach Straton; Charles Francis Potter.

Instead, Christ was a Being consisting of a human person and a Divine Person. In other words, this view taught that Jesus, the Man, wasn’t the Second Person of the Trinity. As a result, Nestorius refused to call Mary Theotokos (God-bearer), calling her instead Christotokos (Christ-bearer).

Thus, we see many of the same problems as in. American Standard Version. Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly, that God hath made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom ye crucified. Douay-Rheims Bible. Therefore let all the house of Israel know most certainly, that God hath made both Lord and Christ, this same Jesus, whom you have crucified.

ABOUT THE BOOK. Why is Christ called both “God" and the “Son of God” in Scripture. In Ty Gibson's new book, The Sonship of Christ, you will discover an answer so simple you'll wonder why you never saw it before, and so beautiful it will take your breath the way, Gibson creates a whole new theological lens through which to interpret the Trinity versus anti.

Jesus Christ is true God and true man" (CCC, ). The divinity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Word of God, was dealt with in summary no. 5 on the Blessed Trinity. Here we will focus primarily on his humanity. The Church defended and clarified this truth of faith during the first centuries against the heresies which denied or misrepresented it.

St. Paul insists on the truth of Christ's real humanity and Divinity, in spite of the fact that at first sight the reader is confronted with three objects in the Apostle's writings: God, the human world, and the Mediator.

But then the latter is both Divine and human, both God and man. (a) Christ's Humanity in the Pauline Epistles.Jesus was real—He felt, He spoke, He observed, worked, ate and breathed. He was both Man and God, physical yet divine. During His 33½ years of human existence, Christ experienced life as a baby, then a toddler, boy, teenager and young adult, into manhood.

God inspired Matthew, Mark, Luke and John to record the details of Jesus’ 3½-year.Christ Jesus being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men.

(Philippians ) Being God in the flesh – not a different God, but the same God – Christ could justly claim equality with God and exercise all the.
