God Became Man

I.  Jesus is God.

1.  Jesus is God, because Jesus is called “Son of God.”.  Some say “son of God” means Jesus is not God.  Please read John 5:17-18.  Because Jesus called God his father, he was claiming to be _______ with God. Therefore “son of God” means that Jesus ____ God.

2.  Jesus is God, because Jesus does the works of God.  Please read Mark 2:7.  Only God can forgive sins.  Jesus forgives sins; therefore Jesus is ______.

3.  Jesus is God, because Jesus has the characteristics of God.  Please read 1 Timothy 1:17.  The only God is eternal an immortal — that means God cannot die.  Please read Acts 2:24.  The Bible says it was impossible for death to keep  hold of Jesus.  Therefore Jesus is _______.

4.  Jesus is God, because Jesus receives worship.  Please read Luke 4:8.  Jesus tells us that we must worship only God.  Please read Matthew 28:17.  Jesus receives worship from his disciples: therefore Jesus is _______.  Please read John 20:28.  Thomas calls Jesus “My Lord and my _______.”

II.  Jesus is human

Please read Hebrews 2:14.  Jesus took on flesh and _____, therefore Jesus is human.

III.  Two reasons that Jesus came to earth:
MAKE GOD KNOWN TO US.  John 1:18 “no one has seen God at any time, but the only Son, who is from the bosom of the father, has made him known.

BRING US TO GOD.  1 Peter 3:18.  “Christ died for sins once and for all, the just for the unjust, to bring you to God.”

Jesus revealed details about God. For example, In John 14:16, Jesus says, “I will ask the father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever — the Spirit of truth.”  These three persons in the one God are summarized by Jesus in Matthew 28:19: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  in John 3:16, Jesus reveals that his coming to bring us to God reveals the heart of God: “God loved the world so much that he sent his only son, so that whoever believes in him will not perish, but have eternal life.”
