The Humanity of Christ:-3



5. He possessed body, soul & spirit as any other man.

“And the word became flesh and dwelt among us. .” John.1:14. Cf. Matthew 26:12; Luke 24:39; Heb.2:14.

“Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death.” Matthew 26:38.

“And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, Father in to your hands I commit My spirit .” Luke 23:46.

The above referred scripture portions reveal that as any other human being, Christ possessed a body , soul and spirit . We should remember that, human body is not sinful in its original creation. Body was there in God's original plan. Christ took that real human nature which God had planned in creation. Hebrews. 4:15 .

6. He had human names.

a. Jesus. Matthew.1:21 It was a common name given for others too.

b. Son of Man. Luke. 19:10. Around 80 times in the gospels He calls Himself as ‘Son of Man'.

c. Son of David. Mark 10:47 . This title refers to His family background.

d. Man. 1Timothy.2:5; Isaiah 53:3.

e. Carpenter. Mark 6:3

7. He was subject to all the sinless infirmities of humanity.

i. He was hungry. Matthew. 4:2; 21:18 cf. Psalm 50:12, 13.

ii. He was thirsty. John.4:7; 19:28 .

iii. He was weary. John.4:6 cf. Isaiah 40:28

iv. He slept as a normal man. Matthew. 8:24 cf. Psalm 121:4

v. He wept. John. 11:35 ; Luke 19:41; Matthew. 23:7

vi. He was tempted like a man. Matthew. 4:1—11. Hebrews.4:15.

vii. He was exhausted and craved for sympathy. Matthews. 26: 38—40; Luke 22:44.

viii. He died as any other man. Hebrews.9:27.

Thus we see The Lord Jesus Christ did go through all the sinless weaknesses of human nature. He had the same state of man – as God created man in the Garden of Eden. It was perfect humanity.
