Yes, Jesus is fully God and fully Man. He is the perfect God-Man.
Even before the world began, Jesus was always with God and was God (John 1:1-2). God is one God in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. As the Son of God, Jesus has always existed and always will exist. God created the world through Jesus (John 1:3).
Jesus became a human about 2,000 years ago when He was born to the virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit—so Jesus’ Father is God (Luke 1:26-35). The Son of God took on a human body when He came to earth, but Jesus never stopped being God the Son (John 1:14). God became Man—this wonderful truth is called the incarnation.
Jesus proved He was God by the miracles He did. He made blind people see, lame people walk, and sick people better. He even calmed a storm. Once, Jesus fed thousands of people with just two fish and five loaves of bread.
Jesus is God, and He is man at the same time. As a man, Jesus knows how we feel (Hebrews 4:14-16). He felt hunger and sadness and pain. As God the Son, Jesus is very different from us. He never sinned, but He kept God’s commands perfectly. Because Jesus never sinned, He didn't deserve to die. Death is the punishment for sinners.
However, Jesus, the sinless God-Man, died on the cross to take the punishment for the sin of believers. He proved His victory over sin and death by becoming alive from the dead! Those who turn from sin and trust the Lord Jesus are saved from sin and eternal death.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:23).
Go back to:
- "All of God lives fully in Christ" (Colossians 2:9, NCV).
- "All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: 'The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel' - which means, 'God with us'" (Matthew 1:22-23).
- "He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together" (Colossians 1:15-17).
