Having no beginning and no end, Christ is the eternal Son of God. In his incarnation as Jesus Christ, he was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of Mary. In this arrangement, what Christians call “the incarnation,” Jesus simultaneously was 100% human and 100% God. Even so, as per Philippians 2:7 and Hebrews 2:17-18, Jesus temporarily and voluntarily relinquished some of his divine prerogatives while on Earth. This gives insight into verses like Luke 2:40 which describes Jesus as “growing” in wisdom. It also explains how Jesus could ask legitimate questions and how he (God) could be killed by his creatures (only by his own willingness/ self-imposed limitations).
The God-Son, Jesus, honored the God-Father, by his personal obedience to him. In Jesus’ execution on the cross and subsequent literal and physical resurrection, he made provisions for the redemption of humanity from evil and therefore death. As Christ’s body was raised imperishable from the grave, so too will those who have not rejected him. Jesus is presently at work in the world (everywhere) and lives both within his followers and at the right hand of the Father. Jesus is our advocate, Priest, and King (Heb. 7:25; 9:24).
