Incarnation of Jesus by Piero Di Cosimo
Imagine a girl, just a few years older than you, who had heard her whole life about the Messiah. Her religion was based on a promise from God to Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, David, etc. that someday there was to be a Promised One who would redeem all of humanity from their sins.
One day that girl, Mary, was praying alone in her room. Suddenly, she was greeted by the Archangel Gabriel. The Archangel greeted her by saying that the Lord is with her and that she is blessed among women. Mary must have wondered why this angel was there and what his words meant. The angel told her not to be afraid because God loved her very much. The angel then told her that she would have a baby boy, a Son, and she would name Him Jesus. This Son, Jesus, would be called Son of God, and He would be King of all. Mary was now very confused. How could she have a baby if she wasn’t even married?

It is really important that we understand that Jesus Christ is not part man and part God. He is not 50% God and 50% man. He is rather 100% God and 100% man at the same time. Jesus Christ, even now in Heaven, is fully God and fully man.
He is all of both. Everything he does as man is done as God. And everything He does as God is done as man. There is no separating of the person Jesus Christ into his God part and His man part. He is one person sharing to natures, human and divine, simultaneously.
Jesus gets His divine nature from God. Jesus gets His human nature from Mary. Because so much of our understanding of Jesus is based on our un... Please purchase this lesson to continue learning.
