The Humanity of Jesus Christ

I. We need to remember the humanity of Jesus Christ.
1. As Christians, we often emphasize the deity of Jesus Christ, which is an absolutely essential Christian belief (Joh 1:1-3,14).
2. But we must not forget that Jesus is not only fully God, but He is also fully man (1Ti 2:5).
3. Jesus frequently referred to Himself as "the Son of man" (ex: Mat 8:20).
4. In this study, we will "behold the man", Jesus Christ (Joh 19:5).

II. Jesus was touched with the feelings of our infirmities (Heb 2:17-18; Heb 4:15).

III. Jesus experienced all of the emotions that we experience, such as:

2. Because He was tempted, He is able to help us when we are tempted (Heb 2:18).
