8) Jesus as the Man
So often Jesus is portrayed as a man.
The man Christ Jesus. (Acts2:22; 1Timothy2: 5; Romans5: 15)
the prophet like unto Moses.(Deuteronomy 18: 15; Acts 3: 22)
touched with the feeling of our infirmities...in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4: 15)
He “offered up prayers and strong supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared”... and he “learned obedience by the things that he suffered.” (Hebrews 5:7-8)
These are not the characteristics or behaviour that can be applied to Yahweh.
Jesus had characteristics familiar to us all. He became weary. he wept, he prayed for strength. He was revealed as having limited knowledge. He said of himself,
“But of that day and hour knows no one, no not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” (Matthew 24: 36)
Even after his glorification and ascension to heaven this remains true. In Revelation 1: 1, it is the Father who gives Jesus the prophecy that he, in turn, gives to John on the Isle of Patmos, the Revelation, or the Apocalypse, the last book of the Bible.
