    A. Christ, the Son of God, became man, by

    Ghost, in the womb of the virgin Mary, and
    born of her, yet without sin.

   Westminster Shorter Catechism

   Q. 27. Wherein did Christ‟s humiliation
    A. Christ‟s humiliation consisted in his being
    born, and that in a low condition, made under
    the law, undergoing the miseries of this life,
    the wrath of God, and the cursed death of the
    cross; in being buried, and continuing under
    the power of death for a time.
        Doctrine of Jesus Christ
   Westminster Shorter Catechism

   Q. 28. Wherein consisteth Christ‟s exaltation?
    A. Christ‟s exaltation consisteth in his rising
    again from the dead on the third day, in
    ascending up into heaven, in sitting at the right
    hand of God the Father, and in coming to
    judge the world at the last day.
     FHBC Statement of Faith
In the Lord Jesus Christ, completely God and
  completely human, who was conceived of
  the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary
  in his incarnation. He lived a sinless life,
  died as a perfect sacrifice for our sins, was
  buried, and rose bodily from the dead. He
  ascended into heaven, was exalted by the
  Father, and now intercedes as our High
  Priest. (Matthew 1:18-25; John 1:1, 14;
  Romans 1:2-4; 8:34; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1
  Peter 2:22; 3:18; 1 John 3:5; 5:20)
        Doctrine of Jesus Christ
   Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus, as part
    of the Trinity, is fully divine.
   John 1:1 – “In the beginning was the Word,
    and the Word was with God, and the Word
    was God.”
      Doctrine of Jesus Christ
 56Your father Abraham rejoiced at the
 thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was
 glad.” 57“You are not yet fifty years old,”
 they said to him, “and you have seen
 Abraham!” 58“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus
 answered, “before Abraham was born, I
 am!” – John 8:56-58.

 14Godsaid to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM. This
 is what you are to say to the Israelites: „I AM
 has sent me to you.‟ ” – Exodus 3:14
         Doctrine of Jesus Christ
 15The  Son is the image of the invisible God, the
  firstborn over all creation. 16For in him all things
  were created: things in heaven and on earth,
  visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or
  rulers or authorities; all things have been created
  through him and for him. 17He is before all things,
  and in him all things hold together. – Colossians

 9For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in
  bodily form, 10and in Christ you have been
  brought to fullness. He is the head over every
  power and authority. – Colossians 2:9-10
        Doctrine of Jesus Christ
   Scripture clearly teaches that Jesus Christ is
    fully human, born of the virgin Mary, and
    had a human body and a human nature.
   14The Word became flesh and made his

    dwelling among us. We have seen his glory,
    the glory of the one and only Son, who came
    from the Father, full of grace and truth. –
    John 1:14
   Jesus wept. – John 11:35
   2After fasting forty days and forty nights, he

    was hungry. - Matthew 4:2
      Doctrine of Jesus Christ
 16Forsurely it is not angels he helps, but
 Abraham‟s descendants. 17For this reason
 he had to be made like his brothers and
 sisters in every way, in order that he might
 become a merciful and faithful high priest
 in service to God, and that he might make
 atonement for the sins of the people.
 18Because he himself suffered when he was

 tempted, he is able to help those who are
 being tempted. – Hebrews 2:16
        Doctrine of Jesus Christ
 20I  have been crucified with Christ and I no
    longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I
    now live in the body, I live by faith in the
    Son of God, who loved me and gave himself
    for me. - Galatians 2:20
   Christ became a member of the human race
    himself, so that he might be able to redeem
    that race of which he is now, and will
    forever be, a member!
            One Final Passage
 26 Ifwe deliberately keep on sinning after we have
  received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for
  sins is left, 27 but only a fearful expectation of
  judgment and of raging fire that will consume the
  enemies of God. 28 Anyone who rejected the law of
  Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or
  three witnesses. 29 How much more severely do you
  think a man deserves to be punished who has
  trampled the Son of God under foot, who has treated
  as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that
  sanctified him, and who has insulted the Spirit of
  grace? 30 For we know him who said, “It is mine to
  avenge; I will repay,” and again, “The Lord will judge
  his people.” 31 It is a dreadful thing to fall into the
  hands of the living God. - Hebrews 10:26-31
