Re: Article: The Humanity of Jesus
The basic idea of Jesus being both fully man as well as fully God shows that Jesus Christ is truly the Mediator between God and men in being and not just in function. If Jesus is really a man, then His being is permanently entwined with the "fate" of men. There is no going back. God has fused Himself to His own creation. Another ramification is that we can BE like Him since He has perfected the holy walk while still in the flesh.
I find that most evangelicals have a hard time with the human aspect of Jesus. They are so focused on His divinity and ability to save, they forget that Jesus commands us to follow Him and do what He does...as the power of life in us through grace. How many believe in the empowering of the Spirit to walk as He walked and have a complete victory over sin?
