How did Christ show from the Scriptures that the promised Saviour of the world must be both human and divine?


      While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 

      Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. 

     He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, 

       The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? 

     If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? 

Matthew 22:41-45


Comment- Divinity needed humanity, for it required both the divine and the human to bring salvation to the world. Divinity needed humanity, that humanity might afford a channel of communication between God and man. Man needs power outside of, and beyond, himself to restore him to the likeness of God.  There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before men can be changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ. His grace alone can quicken the lifeless faculties of the soul, and attract it to God, to holiness.


What two facts testify to the union of divinity and humanity in Christ?


      “Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; 

      And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.” 

Romans 1:3,4


How complete is the salvation in Christ?


      “Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.” 

Hebrews 7: 25


What should we say for such a Saviour?


      “Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift.” 

2 Corinthians 9:15
