True Man & True God
The miracle of the incarnation upended everything. The Greeks were fine with gods gallivanting around the world just so long as they and their followers supported the state. The Jews wanted a messiah, but he couldn’t come from a jerkwater town, and he certainly couldn’t claim to be God and go around acting like Him—forgiving sins, raising the dead, and claiming authority over the temple. Jesus did all of these things as true man and true God, the human and divine natures existing in the single person born in Bethlehem, born to the virgin Mary, born to set His people free.
