So, to remind you, “What is the nature of Jesus?” Man or God?
Graybeard, this is very simple.
Jesus is 100% man (the flesh) and 100% God (The eternal soul)
I think this is one of those things that is “simple to the simple.” You seem to have learned a formal and simply repeated it without understanding it.
I’m sorry, but the idea of there being 100% twice does not seem very simple. Could you expand upon this please?
As I understand it, and from the verses I have given, an adult Jesus has been in heaven (I assume as a spirit not a human) since before Creation. That spirit was then placed inside a fetus in a virgin’s womb. Jesus’s spirit would have been aware of this at all times, including directly after His birth
So you seem to imply that Jesus consisted of God’s spirit inhabiting a human body and that the Spirit of God is aware that it is occupying a human body.
If this is so, the Spirit of God must have known that it was indestructible. It must have known that the body that it inhabited could be destroyed.
So the Cricifixion is rather like your driving your old clunker of a car to a wreckers’ yard, getting out of the car and then seeing it crushed. There is no pain for the car and all you have lost is a car that was worthless and your life continues as usual.
So, where was this sacrifice? Jesus started in Heaven and ended up back in heaven, didn’t he?
