Unique Qualities of Christ: His Birth

Only Jesus

The things which qualified Jesus to be the promised Messiah were not merely being born at the right time and being of the right family (although these are important), the truly unique qualities of Jesus as the Christ are those things which no other man could ever have. It is not a question of whether Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ, but how anyone else could possibly be the Christ.

The Greatness of Jesus Proven By His Enemies: Part Three

Even More Proof

In previous articles, we introduced the idea of Jesus’ greatness being proven by those who were opposed to Him. As stated before, although this concept may at first seem somewhat backwards (why do we care what Jesus’ enemies think?), what those who are against you have to admit to be true about you can be very telling. It is the purpose of this article to examine Jesus’ genealogy.

Although this concept may at first seem somewhat backwards (why do we care what Jesus’ enemies think?), what those who are against you have to admit to be true about you can be very telling. It is the purpose of this article to examine the accusations made against Jesus authority.

The Reaction of Others

One can learn a lot about another individual based upon how people react to him or her. This is true of those who are friends of such a person and is also true of those who are enemies of such a person. Those who stand as enemies of a person will usually point out flaws – his or her weaknesses, his or her negative aspects, etc. The same is true concerning Jesus Christ and His enemies.

The Perfect Man for the Job

“But when the fullness of the time came, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the Law, so that He might redeem those who were under the Law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.” (Gal. 4:4, 5, NASU)

Paul wrote these words to the Galatians describing Jesus as being the perfect man for the mission He was sent to accomplish. There was truly no other person who could fulfill this role, and no one else can claim His position as Lord. This eternal truth is proven in four different ways by Paul.
