Sunday April 3, 2011The Unique Person of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Series: The Incarnation Of Our Lord And Savior Jesus ChristLesson # 4

slide4

Back in January of this year, we presented an introduction to a new study that we will conduct the first Sunday of each month, namely a study of the unique person of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

slide5
In February, we continued this study by noting the preexistence of our Lord and then last month we studied the deity of our Lord.
slide7

In the context of Christian theology, the “incarnation” is the act whereby the eternal Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, without ceasing to be what He is, namely God the Son, clothed Himself permanently with what He did not possess before the act, namely an impeccable human nature.

slide9

The “hypostatic union,” which we will note in the future, is the result of the incarnation and was accomplished by means of the incarnation, which itself was accomplished by means of the virgin pregnancy.

slide11

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only uniquely born One from the Father, full of grace and truth. (NASU)

slide12

1 Timothy 3:16 And by common confession great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, beheld by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. (NASU)

slide13
The second person of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ, entered permanently into the human race by means of the virgin birth.
slide16
He is different from the Father and the Spirit in that He clothed His deity with a sinless human nature.
slide17

He is different from the other members of the human race in that He is God, and without a sin nature because He did not have a human father.

however he did not possess a sin nature since the holy spirit impregnated mary and not a man
However, He did not possess a sin nature since the Holy Spirit impregnated Mary and not a man.
slide21

Therefore, there is no one like Him in the universe; He is a totally unique person, because He combined forever in Himself undiminished deity along with perfect sinless humanity.

slide22

When speaking of the incarnation, we must of course discuss the virgin birth since, as we noted, the incarnation was the result of the virgin birth (Isa. 9:6-7; Micah 5:2; Luke 1:30-35).

in 700 b c the prophet isaiah was used by god the holy spirit to prophecy of the birth of our lord
In 700 B.C., the prophet Isaiah was used by God the Holy Spirit to prophecy of the birth of our Lord.
slide25

Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel. (NASU)

slide28

Isaiah 9:6 For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

slide29

7 There will be no end to the increase of {His} government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. (NASU)

the fulfillment of the prophecies of isaiah 7 14 and 9 6 7 are recorded in matthew 1 2 and luke 1 2
The fulfillment of the prophecies of Isaiah 7:14 and 9:6-7 are recorded in Matthew 1-2 and Luke 1-2.
john 12 31 now judgment is upon this world now the ruler of this world shall be cast out nasu
John 12:31 “Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world shall be cast out.” (NASU)
slide35

John 16:7 “But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you.

slide37

9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; 10 and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father and you no longer see Me; 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.” (NASU)

slide38
Without the incarnation there would be no cross and without the cross, there would be no victory over Satan.
slide39

Colossians 2:15 When He (the Father) had disarmed the rulers and authorities, He (the Father) made a public display of them, having triumphed over them through him (Christ). (NASU)

slide40

Not only did the incarnation bring about the defeat of Satan but of course it also provided all of mankind with a Redeemer (Galatians 4:4-6).

slide41

If not for the incarnation, there would be no cross and resurrection and therefore there would be no salvation or hope for mankind (Titus 2:11).

slide42

If there was no incarnation, there would be no cross and if no cross, no resurrection, thus leaving the entire human race lost in sin (1 Corinthians 15:17).

man would not be reconciled to god without the incarnation romans 5 10 11 2 corinthians 5 18 19
Man would not be reconciled to God without the incarnation (Romans 5:10-11; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19).
slide45

Colossians 1:19 For it was the Father's good pleasure for all the fullness to dwell in Him, 20 and through Him to reconcile all things to himself, having made peace through the blood of His cross; through Him, I say, whether things on earth or things in heaven.

slide46

21 And although you were formerly alienated and hostile in mind, engaged in evil deeds, 22 yet He has now reconciled you in His fleshly body through death, in order to present you before Him holy and blameless and beyond reproach. (NASU)

slide47
Thus, since Christ reconciled sinful humanity to a holy God, He is also the only “intermediary” between God and man.
thus without the incarnation there would be no intermediary between sinful humanity and a holy god
Thus without the incarnation, there would be no intermediary between sinful humanity and a holy God.
slide49

1 Timothy 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony borne at the proper time. (NASU)

slide50

The incarnation provided the human race with a “kinsman redeemer” who is someone who pays a price to set someone free who is under bondage to another (1 Corinthians 6:20).

slide51

There would be no high priest to represent the believer before God without the incarnation (Hebrews 2:17; 3:1; 4:14-16; 6:19; 7:25-27; 8:1; 9:24-28).

slide52
Jesus Christ functions as the believer’s “advocate” before the Father when the believer is accused by Satan.
there would be no new creation without the incarnation 2 corinthians 5 17 ephesians 2 14 15
There would be no “new creation” without the incarnation (2 Corinthians 5:17; Ephesians 2:14-15).
there would be no one to sit upon david s throne without the incarnation isaiah 9 7 luke 1 32
There would be no one to sit upon David’s Throne without the incarnation (Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32).
slide59

John 1:18 No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God (the Lord Jesus Christ), who is in the bosom of the Father, He (the Lord Jesus Christ) has explained Him (the Father). (NASU)

slide62
In other words, He explained or manifested through His words and actions the character and nature of the Father.
slide63
The Lord Jesus Christ fully revealed who God is and made known the complete revelation of God to man.
god s love for mankind is revealed through the incarnation john 3 16 romans 5 8 1 john 3 16 4 10
God’s love for mankind is revealed through the incarnation (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; 1 John 3:16; 4:10).
slide66

The prophecy of Moses that God would raise up a Man who would be a prophet like himself is fulfilled through the incarnation (Deuteronomy 18:15-19; Matthew 17:5; John 7:16; 8:28; 12:47-50).

slide67
The grace of God towards mankind was manifested through the incarnation (John 1:17; Romans 5:15; Titus 2:11).
slide68

This leads us to the communion service and so therefore, could we have our ushers pass out the communion elements and let us take a few minutes to meditate upon the Lord and prepare ourselves for the Lord’s Supper.

slide69

1 Corinthians 11:23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread

slide70
24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
slide71

25 In the same way {He took} the cup also after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink {it} in remembrance of Me.”

slide72
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. (NASU)
