The Promise of His Coming (33)

Jesus is fully God and fully man. We find this great truth in Paul's opening verses in his letter to the Romans.

his Son, who was descended from David according to the flesh and was declared to be the Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 1:3-4)

The Son of David is also the Son of God. He comes in the line of David, his great ancestor; but he is also the Son of God as recognised through the power that raised him from the dead, so that he is Jesus, the Christ, the Lord.

The baby in Bethlehem is no ordinary baby, but the one who has come to die and rise again, to offer us life through the obedience of faith among all the nations.
