JESUS CHRIST – FULLY GOD AND FULLY MAN
Jesus Christ as God for-knew all aspects of his arrest, torture, and death.
Then He took the twelve aside and said to them, “Behold, we are going
up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets
concerning the Son of Man will be accomplished. For He will be
delivered to the Gentiles and will be mocked and insulted and spit
upon. They will scourge Him and kill Him. And the third day He will
rise again.” Luke 18:31-33.
Jesus Christ as Man cringed at the knowledge of being arrested, tortured, and murdered.
Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and
His disciples also followed Him. When He came to the place, He said to
them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” And He was
withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and
prayed, saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from
Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.” Then an angel
appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him. And being in agony, He
prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood
falling down to the ground. Luke 22:39-44.
Jesus Christ as God for-knew the hate of the high priest, scribes, and elders.
Then the high priest tore his clothes, saying, “He has spoken
blasphemy! What further need do we have of witnesses? Look, now you
have heard His blasphemy! What do you think?” They answered and said,
“He is deserving of death.” Then they spat in His face and beat Him;
and others struck Him with the palms of their hands, saying, “Prophesy
to us, Christ! Who is the one who struck You?” Matthew 26:65-68.
Jesus Christ as Man cringed at the thought of being beaten by the scribes and elders.
Jesus Christ as God for-knew the hate of the Roman soldiers.
Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he
delivered Him to be crucified. Then the soldiers of the governor took
Jesus into the Praetorium and gathered the whole garrison around Him.
And they stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. When they had
twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His
right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying,
“Hail, King of the Jews!” Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and
struck Him on the head. And when they had mocked Him, they took the
robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be
crucified. Matthew 27:26-31.
Jesus Christ as Man cringed at the thought of being whipped and hit by the soldiers.
Jesus Christ as God for-knew the agony of his death by crucifixion.
My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me? Why are You so far from
helping Me, and from the words of My groaning? O My God, I cry in the
daytime, but You do not hear; And in the night season, and am not
silent. But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. Our
fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. They
cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not
ashamed. But I am a worm, and no man; A reproach of men, and despised
by the people. All those who see Me ridicule Me; They shoot out the
lip, they shake the head, saying, “He trusted in the Lord, let Him
rescue Him; Let Him deliver Him, since He delights in Him!” But You are
He who took Me out of the womb; You made Me trust while on My mother’s
breasts. I was cast upon You from birth. From My mother’s womb You have
been My God. Be not far from Me, for trouble is near; For there is none
to help. Many bulls have surrounded Me; Strong bulls of Bashan have
encircled Me. They gape at Me with their mouths, like a raging and
roaring lion. I am poured out like water, and all My bones are out of
joint; My heart is like wax; It has melted within Me. My strength is
dried up like a potsherd, and My tongue clings to My jaws; You have
brought Me to the dust of death. For dogs have surrounded Me; The
congregation of the wicked has enclosed Me. They pierced My hands and
My feet; I can count all My bones. They look and stare at Me. They
divide My garments among them, and for My clothing they cast lots.
Jesus Christ as Man cringed at the thought of the agony of his death by crucifixion.
