Without faith, how can we understand what it means to be God and man at the same time? Our text is so powerful that we can spend a lot of time on the subject. I plan a two-part series, trying to help my audience understand this difficult subject.
John’s gospel is not a biography but a treatise to prove the premise in John 1:1-5.14. John’s prologue is so overwhelming that no human being could ever live up to it. John spends the rest of the book laying out evidence to prove his case. Everything in this book is designed to illustrate his point. It comes to fruition when Thomas cries, “My Lord and My God!” in John 20:28.
What is the best way for you to explain what it means for Jesus to be God and man?
