1. JESUS CHRIST PARTOOK OF PERFECT HUMANITY:
“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise

which died, and the Word-Incarnate was God. However, God Almighty could neither be
begotten nor die. There is no Scripture to prove that the flesh of Jesus was not the same as
ours, only in the stated fact that He was sinless. The Scriptures clearly state that the Lord took
on flesh blood like His children. (Hebrews 2:14). This passage proves that the Father, the
Eternal Spirit, manifested Himself in flesh in order to save His children.

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross” (Philippians 2:8).
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (I
No less then eighty times in the Gospels does Jesus call Himself “The Son of Man.”
