 Humanity of Jesus

Just this past weekend was resurrection sunday/Easter, and I went to a passion play and then last night watched about 3/4 of The Passion of Christ movie and could not finish it.

What struck me so powerfully was just the humanity of Jesus, our brother. It can get so easy for us to distance ourselves from who Jesus is. Yes, He is part of the Godhead, and is divine, but when he came to earth to die, he was human, with all the same stuff I deal with, just without sin.

Hebrews 2:5-18 (KJV)

5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.

6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?

7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:

8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.

9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;

15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.

16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.

17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.

18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

 Re: Humanity of Jesus

Brother Doug,

Amen!

The recent realization of this has completely changed my life,... To such an extent that I almost wonder if I really believed what He had accomplished on the cross even scarcely approached the reality of what He indeed did accomplish and that now He is risen and we are in Him at the right hand of the Father is truly good news!:)))

Blessings to you brother~
