In our world there are a lot of people who have contrasting thoughts about the figure they call Christ. We may find several people who say God does not exist and as such Christ does not exist. Though those people are forgetting that Christ Jesus was a political figure, born in 4 BCE. Even when one does believe that God does not exist this justifies not the idea that Jesus Christ would not have existed. First of all, people should know, Jesus is not God the Divine Creator. Secondly Jesus Christ was a man of flesh and blood who many people could see. (Remember no man can see God and live. Exodus 33:20)
Jesus was seen by hundreds of people. Lots of people came to see him from close by and more people came to hear about his preaching and his miracles. What was so special about that man is that he was born in the line of King David and as a simple man of flesh and blood, could talk very well and could do very special things, even unbelievable things, like changing water in wine, making people to hear, see and walk again.
Jesus was a man who became declared to be the son of God, by the heavenly Father and Divine Creator Almighty God. But also ordinary man recognised he must be the son of God.
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. (Matt. 3:17).
Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God? (John 10:36).
Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel. (John 1:49).
And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God. (Mark 15:39).
And I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God. (John 1:34)
Jesus, being a man of flesh and blood, was so special because he was a sent one from God who managed not to do wrong or not to sin. He like us was a man also, made in all things like unto ourselves, yet without sin. In the book of books the bible we read about him:
Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: (Acts 2:22).
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; (1 Tim. 2:5).
Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: (Acts 13:38).
Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. (Heb. 2:17)
You may wonder how Jesus Christ could be both man and the Son of God.
Because he was begotten of a human virgin-mother by the power of the Spirit of God, and not by a human father. Mary (or Miriam), a damsel descended from David, and betrothed to Joseph, also a descendant of David, was his mother; and God was his father. So that on his father’s side he was the Son of God, and on his mother’s side he was the son of David, and, therefore, a man partaking of David’s nature, which was the nature common to all.
But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. (Matt. 1:20).
And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. (Luke 1:35).
The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham. (Matt. 1:1).
But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, (Gal. 4:4).
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (Philip. 2:8).
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Heb. 4:15)
