On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (12/02/21), Hank shares his thoughts on the coming of Christ in flesh. The reason we rejoice at Christmas is because the baby born to Mary and Joseph was no ordinary child. This baby was the ultimate fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy of Immanuel: “God with us.” Although John’s Gospel does not include a narrative of Jesus’ birth, the doctrine of the Incarnation is beautifully summed up in his introduction: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” The clear testimony of Scripture is that, in the Incarnation, Christ was one person with two natures; fully God and fully man. As Theanthropos, the God-Man, Jesus lived a perfectly sinless life and died a sinner’s death to atone, once for all, for the sins of humanity.
Hank also answers the following questions:
- What happens to our soul when we die? What about the spirit?
- Can you explain what it means when Jesus says the days will be shortened in Matthew 24:22?
- Should we continue to observe the Sabbath as Jesus and the apostles did?
- Is the story of Jesus copied from stories of Egyptian gods?
- In Ezekiel 29, is the destruction of Egypt something that happened in the past or will this happen in the future?
