Jesus is the most important person who has ever lived since He is the Savior, God in human flesh. He is not half God and half man. He is fully divine and fully man. In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human. Jesus is the Word<> who was God <> and was with God <> and was made flesh (John 1:1 14).

This means that in the single person of Jesus He has both a human and divine nature; God and man.

The divine nature was not changed when the Word became flesh (John 1:1, 14). Instead, the Word was joined with humanity (Col. 2:9).

***Jesus’ divine nature was not altered. ***

Also, Jesus is not merely a man who “had God within Him,” nor is he a man who “manifested the God principle.” He is God in flesh, second person of the Trinity. “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.” (Heb. 1:3).

Jesus’ two natures are not “mixed together” (Eutychianism), nor are they combined into a new God-man nature (Monophysitism). They are separate yet act as a unit in the one person of Jesus. This is called the Hypostatic Union.

Understanding this helps us to better come into communion with Jesus. He was fully man: He suffered as we do, felt as we do, builds understanding and grows in communication with the Father as we do with Him, was tempted as we are.  When The Bible refers to “all” as in all men, Jesus is included in all men. When The Bible refers to God or the Holy Spirit or the word made flesh or Jesus He is also included in that. The trinity is meant for us to love and stand in awe of. We won’t understand it. We are however commanded to have faith in it. Upon believing on God’s son, our brother Jesus Christ, we will have that faith and understanding and be granted with eternal life for believing on Him. Be blessed my brothers and sisters, through Christ I love you all a bushel and a peck.
