5. Two Natures in One Person: If Jesus Got Hungry, Did God?
Good question, and the answer is clear, based on one biblical truth. Other questions are included here, as well.
4. Do I Really Know Jesus? He Took the Form of a Servant
What does Paul mean that Jesus “emptied himself” by taking the form of a servant and was found in the likeness of men and appearance as a man (Phil. 2:6-8)? Did some attributes get trimmed off (e.g. omniscience, omnipresence, and invisibility) to become a semi-deity, a lesser god (of sorts), or did he keep all of them? Let’s explore this doctrine further.

What does ‘incarnation’ mean? What does emptying oneself mean? Basics in a Q & A format.
5. Do I Really Know Jesus? He Came Down from Heaven
Some say the synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) are silent about this claim. But they are not, if you know where to look.
8. Do I Really Know Jesus? He Was Sinless
Can we dispense with the notion that Jesus as a simple peasant, a godly one, from Galilee, but no more than that?
9. Do I Really Know Jesus? He Died for You
Jesus came with the express purpose of preaching the good news of the kingdom, living a godly life, and dying as a sacrifice for our sins.
12. Do I Really Know Jesus? What Was His Resurrected Body Like?
It was a physical body, but it had a spiritual dimension. A new era had been ushered in—for us, foretelling our future state after we die.
13. Do I Really Know Jesus? His Resurrection Changes Everything
It is the central message of the New Testament. His resurrection means everything to you.
1. Titles of Jesus: Rabbi and Teacher
But was he more than that?
2. Titles of Jesus: The Prophet
It reveals his (sinless) human nature with the anointing of God coming on him.
5. Titles of Jesus: The Lord
This title often means more than “sir’ or ‘my lord.’ It can mean the LORD in the Old Testament. A table of references in the Old Testament and New Testament is included.
