Not only was He the son of Mary, He was foremost the Son of God. He was incarnated sent to us for the redemption of all mankind. So how do we handle the incarnation of God? Jesus’ humanity and divinity is union in one human body. God is now living in the flesh as Jesus of Nazareth.
Hagan 2 The Father communes with the logos and the logos is the organ of the creation which God conceived and made by him. The early Christians recognized that God is the source of all reason and knowledge. The logos then becomes the medium between the Transcendent God and the finite universe.

Jesus Christ is the incarnation of the entire divine logos, and the purpose of Christ coming to the world was to teach men the truth and save them from the power of demons.
After all, evil did not come from God, it must have come from a source other than God. ... ... middle of paper ... ...t Him and grow closer to Him. The modern Christian Leslie Newbigin writes fully Augustinian way when he states “I believe that all created beings have a sacramental character in that they exist by the creative goodness and for the redeeming purpose of God, that nothing is rightly understood otherwise, and that, nevertheless, God in creating a world . . .
In Acts 2:36, Peter preached that “Let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” He also declared that “Jesus is Lord of all” (10:36). I understand that ‘Jesus is Lord of all’ means that everything is under his authority. In general, authority is not given to anybody but a person who is in the highest position. In addition, Matthew 28:18 says that “Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth.” This verse reminds me of Genesis 1:1, which it say, “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” According to Genesis, God has the authority over the heavens and the earth because he created them. Based on the scripture verses above, certainly, not only God but also Jesus has the authority over all.
They are united as one in the Trinity, the same all-powerful God. God is the creator of all and the reason for our salvation as humans. “On the Incarnation” by St. Athanasius is a book explaining the Trinity and the process by which our Savior, Jesus Christ the Son, was revealed to us and how he redeemed us. In the first chapters of “On the Incarnation”, St. Athanasius discusses the creation of humanity (and all other things). Another point of discussion in the first pages of this book is the fall of humanity and the foundation of our need for salvation.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” So Jesus was completely human and yet was the gotten from God. and Jesus who is the word was in the beginning creating the earth with the father. CS Lewis describes in Mere Christianity the difference between creation and being begotten in reference to Jesus being different than all the other God 's creations. He says that something that is begotten is an essence a replication or giving birth 2 something of the same species or type as the one who begot it. I know that sounds kind of hard to understand.
Jesus died for our sins on the cross. Jesus took on flesh so that he could be one of our mankind, but he is not just man; he is God in flesh, the second person in the Trinity. “The son is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation for in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities, all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together (Colossians 1:15-16). Jesus is also the Lamb of God, as there has always been the image of Jesus as lamb being sactificial which represents that Jesus being the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world (Martens,
Many scholars also describe it as The Gospel and the Righteousness of God, which can be received only by faith in the atoning death of Jesus Christ.” “The last clause of this great statement of the apostle, through its used of the past tense with the ultimate glory of the child of God, is plainly prophetic, viewing the entire scheme of redemption, from the beginning plan in the purposed of God before the world was created, to the final glory, as a single great design, encompassing within one grand operation the whole of time and temporal things”. (Burton
the opening line of the creed reveals important aspects of God, as being the loving father, sovereign and Almighty and the maker of heaven and earth.This first article of the creed helps christian to affirms that there is only one God, the father almighty and that he is creator of all
And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). We live for God because we know that he was the creator of all things In the beginning God created heaven and earth (Genesis 1:1) and that he is the glue to our puzzle, he hold everything together He is before all things, and in him all things hold together (Colossians 1:17). A true Christian’s worldview believes that even though the bible was not actually wrote by God himself, it is still the word of God, the divinely inspired word that is revealed to mankind All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). Christians have to know that God sacrificed his son Jesus Christ ... ... middle of paper ... ...hristian. It is knowledge that everything is God-given.
