The Incarnation of Christ

The Incarnation of Christ get_app

Published: June 15, 2020

The God of the Bible is Trinitarian in nature, meaning that there is one God who perfectly exists in three distinct persons. Last week we looked to the scriptures to examine the first person of the Godhead, God the Father. This week we will look to the scriptures to examine the second person of the Trinity, God the Son. Today we will examine the glorious doctrine of the incarnation - that God took on flesh in the form of an infant, to become like us.

Read John 1:1-5.

  • When you hear the words “In the Beginning,” what does it make you think of?
    (Genesis 1:1)
  • How do we know that the “Word” is a person?
    (Verse 2, “He” was with God in the beginning)
  • What 3 truths does verse 1 tell us about the Word?
    (He was in the beginning, He was with God, He was God)
  • What else do these verses tell us about the “Word”?

Read John 1:6-13.

  • In these verses John tells us that “the true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world”. How do we know that the true light is a person?
    (Verse 10, “He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him”)

Read John 1:14-18.

  • John 14 tells us that: “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Going back to the 3 truths from verse 1, why is this a monumental statement?
    (God became man)
  • In verse 17, John gives name to this God-Man. What is his name?
    (Jesus Christ)
  • What does Verse 18 tell us about this God-Man Jesus Christ?
    (though no one has ever seen God, Jesus has made him known to us)

Close in prayer for the simple fact that God took on flesh to dwell among us.
