TOPIC: JESUS TRULY APPEARED IN PHYSICAL HUMAN FORM

TEXT: JOHN 1 : 14 - 28


There are all kinds of teachings going round the world about what many refer to as the real "historical Jesus." Perhaps the reader may have encountered some of these false teachings which contest the physical Jesus.


In today's text, we have solid historical testimonies of the reality or Jesus who came in physical human form. First, John the writer affirms that "the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us" (vs. 14)


The people of John's time never refuted such a claim. John the Baptizer also added his voice when it was credited that "John [the Baptizer] testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, 'This is the one I spoke about...'" (vs. 15). The words 'spoke about' also mean 'to testify'. This is common courtroom language that expresses profound evidence that is verifiable and concrete, not mere imagination.


Verse 28 concludes that Jesus "was among them standing in physical form. Jesus truly came in the flesh in order that we may be redeemed.


QUESTION

Do you still doubt that Jesus truly came in human form?



PRAYER

Thank You, Jesus, for coming to the earth and living among us in order that You would be able to sympathize with us and offer Your life as a ransom for our sins, Amen.
