Jesus Christ God and man

  "No one has ever seen God" (John 1:18) but in Jesus Christ the God who created this earth has actually walked with us on this earth. In Jesus Christ the divine has revealed itself and expressed itself in a human way, in a way in which we as human beings can understand and relate to. In doing so Jesus Christ has made God known, and He has revealed to us the full splendour and beauty and dignity of what it means to be human.
  Jesus Christ is both the human face of God and the divine face of humanity. On the Cross He has provided us with the ultimate expression of God's love for us, and the ultimate example of the love and forgiveness which we as human beings are capable of showing to one another. In a human way He has shown us that God will hold nothing back from us in order to save us from sin and from the harsh reality and loneliness of suffering and death. On the Cross and in the tomb Jesus Christ has conquered and destroyed both sin and death, opening for us the way to eternal life.
  Jesus Christ is both fully divine and fully human, truly God and truly man. In Jesus Christ the divine nature and the human nature have come together as one, and so in Jesus Christ the distance between the divine and the human, the gap between God and humanity, has been reduced to nothing. And therefore it is by entering into an intimate and loving relationship with Jesus Christ that we enter into an intimate and loving relationship with our God. It is through Jesus Christ that we come to God the Father (John 14:6).

  This article seeks to explain this great mystery of our Christian faith, bringing Christ's message of hope to others.
