In the fifth discourse, the Son of God is described to further reflect himself about his unique and intimate eternal activity. First the author describes the production of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is said to be the bond between the divine persons. And the Son of God wanted his own person to be the producer. This would be the bond between the human and the divine being. The author describes the Holy Spirit as being a person that proceeds from the Holy Trinity. It is the bond that creates a sense of unity among the divine Persons and that they are perfectly united in the “unity of the Holy Spirit” yet they still are able to maintain their distinct natures (pg 134). The author also mentions two mysteries. The first mystery is described as having a divine person whom we adore, uniting two persons. And the second mystery is described as having a divine person whom we adore by uniting the two natures, one which is divine and the other being human. “He contemplates, adores and imitates the unity of the Holy Spirit, who is the third Person in the order of the Holy Trinity and who, by his nature, is the eternal bond between the two Persons from whom he proceeds.” (pg 135). All together the Son of God is our personal love and sacred unity. He is uniquely expressed and distinctly represented by “the states and qualities of this divine mystery, which is in a perfect relationship with what is ineffable in eternity, as well as being a living portrait of God” (135).

...is composed of two natures, one external, one internal, one divine the other human, one invisible and one visible. “For notwithstanding this supreme and divine state, he experienced swaddling clothes, the crèche, childhood and the powerlessness of childhood, flight and persecution” (pg 144). God experienced the lowliness of human nature. Even though Jesus experienced all these states he was truly God-man. However, the glory of the Father wasn’t established in him yet. It was deferred by the plan of God for his son. This division only existed in Jesus. It was for the sole purpose of representing and erasing the separation that occurred between God and his creatures through sin. Jesus was separated from glory due to love. So its our duty to love Jesus in his love. It was due to love he gave his divinity to humanity. The mystery is love and only can be love.

- Diving into Christology, the study of Jesus Christ, Jones writes about the image of God as a person. There are a lot of questions circulating Jesus’s identity as the Son of God and the Son of Man; Jones helps us clear that up by presenting the personal Jesus. God came to earth in human form as Jesus, the center of the Christian faith and the Second Person of the Trinity. Through the action of coming to earth as one of us, God opened a new door to explore a deeper, personal relationship with Him, which is the focus of the Christian life....

- When a person dies and their eulogy is being read, they want to be remembered as a person of good and as a person who was humble, as in the view of Christ, as well as forgiving.

- , He had no qualms about telling His opponents that He was the son of God (John 10:36 TLB [The Living Bible]), the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6), and that anyone who had seen Him, had seen the father (John 14:9).

Additionally, in spite of all threats of intimidation, and even though He was given every chance, He never denied His claim to be God.... [tags: Jesus, Christianity, New Testament]

- “You of little faith, why do you doubt?” (Matthew 14:31) I feel like at some point in our lives, this quote describes every human being. Faith is so simple, yet we always seem to complicate it. We often forget how easily Christ can take away our doubts and turn them into triumph. Matthew is a very powerful gospel, it gives many parables, miracles, and shows Christ’s love for all of mankind. I love how Christ’s character is revealed so much more, not that the other gospels don’t reveal that, but just the idea of another gospel that Christ is present in....
