Today let us open God’s word and see somethings it says about the human nature of Christ.

1 Timothy 2:For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,

Hebrews 2:You have made him a little lower than the angels;
You have crowned him with glory and honor,[a]
And set him over the works of Your hands.

Galatians 4:But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born[a] of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

Romans 6:15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 19–I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.

Luke 1:31 And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.

HIS BIRTH——-     Matt. 1:And Jacob begot Joseph the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.   25 and did not know her till she had brought forth her firstborn Son.[a] And he called His name Jesus.

Luke 2:And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.  11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

He was flesh and blood— John 1: 14 And the Word became 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.

Hebrews 2: 14 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
