The Incarnation of Christ

Hebrews 2:14-18

“The Incarnation of Christ”

Heb 2:14-18

14 Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same,  15 and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16 For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham.

17 Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.

John 1:14

14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 7:3-5

3 Therefore His brothers said to Him, “Leave here and go into Judea, so that Your disciples also may see Your works which You are doing. 4 “For no one does anything in secret when he himself seeks to be known publicly. If You do these things, show Yourself to the world.”  5 For not even His brothers were believing in Him.

Luke 4:22

22 And all were speaking well of Him, and wondering at the gracious words which were falling from His lips; and they were saying, “Is this not Joseph’s son?”

Mark 3:21-22

21 When His own people heard of this, they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, “He has lost His senses.” 22 The scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, “He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and “He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.”

John 1:10

10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.

a.  Jesus became a man to sympathize with our weaknesses.

Eph 4:26 —-“BE ANGRY, AND yet DO NOT SIN; do not let the sun go down on your anger, “

b.  Jesus came to deliver us from the fear of death.

 Thanatos—(bible dictionary)   In the NT, this sense is applied with more definitiveness to the gospel plan of salvation, and as ZOE is used to denote the bliss and glory of the kingdom of God including the idea of a joyful resurrection, so thánatos is used for the opposite, (exclusion from the bliss and glory of the kingdom of God—exclusion of ZOE)

 John 10:10

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.

John 14:6

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

c.  Jesus came to deliver us from our sins.

1 Peter 2:24

24 and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed.

Isa 53:4-6

4 Surely our griefs He Himself bore,

And our sorrows He carried;

Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

Smitten of God, and afflicted.

5 But He was pierced through for our transgressions,

He was crushed for our iniquities;

The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,

And by His scourging we are healed.

6 All of us like sheep have gone astray,

Each of us has turned to his own way;

But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all

To fall on Him.
