63 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. II Corinthians 4:4

64 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; Hebrews 10:19-20

65 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14

66 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:21-23

67 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

68 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Luke 4:12

69 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. John 20:28

71 Jesus Christ is God in Flesh: Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. Colossians 2:8-9

72 Jesus Christ is Fully Human: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

73 Jesus Christ is Fully Human: And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. Luke 2:52

74 Jesus Christ is Fully Human: And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. Matthew 4:2

75 Jesus Christ is Fully Human: And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish? Mark 4:38

76 Jesus Christ is Fully Human: No one knows the day or the time. The angels in heaven don't know, and the Son himself doesn't know. Only the Father knows. Mark 13:32

80 The Mystery... And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. I Timothy 3:16

81 The Mystery... It is hard for us to understand that God could take on full humanity and still be God. We must understand that Jesus was both fully God and not just a human filled with the power of God. He was also fully human and not just a body that 'appeared' to be human. He had a dual nature unlike any other person in history....Christ had a 'Dual Nature'

82 The Mystery... Jesus answered them, Many good works have I showed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me? The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. John 10: Christ had a 'Dual Nature'

83 The Mystery... By understanding Christ's dual nature we can comprehend scriptures that would not make sense otherwise. When reading about Christ we often must take into account whether the passage is referring to His humanity or His Deity (flesh or spirit). For example: As a man, Christ prayed. As God he answered prayers....Christ had a 'Dual Nature'
