Some Thoughts On Theology

Doctrine: Humanity of Jesus

Probably one of the most deep-rooted theological complexities in all of Christendom is the humanity of Jesus. Christ, being God’s very own manifestation of himself, came to earth, born as a human, lived, breathed, and died; yet still being completely divine. Utterly a paradox of sorts, there are several conclusions one can draw from this discussion. Jesus was born without sin. Yet, he was able to live without sinning. With all the possibilities for sin and temptation, he never gave in to those desires. We originally, were born without sin. Adam and Eve were “without sin” in the Garden of Eden. However, as soon as they sinned, they brought a new spectrum of life to God’s creation. Committing that act of transgression started a cycle of life for us all in a sin natured state. When Jesus became human, he took upon himself the limitations of humanity. Such as, he could not be omnipresent. The beautiful picture painted by the life of Christ was his ability to live in humanity while indwelling himself in humility. Stepping out of Heaven, to be the substitutionary atonement for our sins. The spotless lamb, whom we considered stricken and smitten. Yet, doing it all so that we may have freedom and live eternally with God beyond anything we can fathom. Christ’s ability to be fully human and fully God, live as man and live without sinning is the reason why we study theology. To understand why God is divinely perfect and to understand why we are so utterly without worth.
