God Became Flesh

The fact is that Jesus was not just a man; he was God who became man. He was not just a historical figure; he is the everlasting and almighty Creator. He was not just a religious leader; he is Lord and Savior.

Although Jesus was born at a point in history, he has always existed even before his entry into this world. He has no beginning or end. He said of himself, "I am the Alpha and the Omega*, the first and the last, the beginning and the end" (Revelation ).

When we talk about Jesus, therefore, we must not only think of him as someone who lived two thousand years ago in the land of Palestine. Jesus is the everlasting God, who humbly became a man in order to save us into his eternal kingdom. So to understand the life and work of the Jesus in history, we need to first turn our attention to Jesus the eternal God, the maker and ruler of all things.

* Alpha and Omega are the first and last alphabets, respectively, in the Greek language.
