The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Mark 1:1)
Who is “Jesus Christ, the Son of God?” Is he a human that God vested with the mantle of “Messiah” and charged with saving his people? Is he the divine and immortal son of an all powerful God?” Is he a human subject to the same temptations we all are? Is he a God impervious to sin’s temptations? Is he a man who fishes, eats and socializes? Is he a God who makes his points with miracles?
The bridge between that which is comprehendible and that which is incomprehendible is tenuous. Does the human element of Jesus Christ make it easier to comprehend the God element? Does being the Son of God give meaning to Jesus Christ the man?
All Man and All God
What is the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God?
The God news is that Man and God-God and Man are joined.
