Jesus is Man

Each of the follow scriptures speak of Jesus being Man.   The also speak of Jesus being the Father, the flesh of God.  To understand how this can be Jesus being Man and God we could truly never know the full power of God, but these scriptures tell us that he was both.  With that we must have full faith in the scriptures and in God.

Isaiah 7:14

14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

  • {Immanuel} Means God with us.  This is also a sign of the miraculous event that signified God’s intervention to mankind.  The word “Virgin” was used by Isaiah to specify an unmarried young woman or “almah” or even the word “Bethulah”  young widow.   We may also trace this word back to Genius  24:43 “almah” speaks of a woman about to be married.

Isaiah 9:6

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

  • “Wonderful” describes the kind of Messiah will be and that is a “Counselor”.  “Counselor” points to the Messiah as a king. “done wonderful things” speaks of the old. “Everlasting Father” he will be an everlasting, compassionate provider and protector.  “Prince of Peace” He will rule and bring wholeness and well-being to society.

Luke 1:31

31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

Luke 2:6-7

6 And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.  7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.

  • “Swaddling Clothing” was used to describe the straps of cloth that were regular used to wrap a newborn infant. Manger” was known as a feeding trough of the animals.  This is the only indication that Christ was born in a stable.  Perhaps a cave at that time was used at a stable.

Acts 17:31

31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

Galatians 4:4

4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,

  • The time appointed by God for His children to become adult heirs.  “God sent forth his Son”  “made of a woman” shows that Christ was truly human “under the law” the Jewish Law that is.

Philippians 2:7-8

7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

  • “made himself of no reputation” He did this, not by giving up deity, but by laying aside His glory.  Another view is that He emptied Himself, not of deity itself, but of its prerogatives.  “From of a servant” this emphasizes the full reality of His servant identity.  A servant is always submissive to the will of the father.
  • “fashion as a man” not only was Jesus “like” man, but He also took on the actual outward characteristics of a man.  Also “a servant” must obey.

1 Timothy 2:5

7 Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.  8 I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.

Hebrews 4:15

15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

“tempted like we as we are” stresses the parallel between Christ’s temptations and ours.  Jesus did not have each temptation we have but experienced every kind of temptation a person can have.  “yet without sin”  the way in which Christ’s temptations were completely different from ours – He never was led into temptation.

Hebrews 7:24-25

24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.  25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.

  • “to the uttermost”   Jesus is a perfect high priest forever, He is also able to save for all time.   “ever liveth to make intercession”  His people will never be without a priestly representative.
