One point of Bible teaching we can't get wrong without destroying the truth of the Bible concerns the deity and humanity of Christ. In a study of 1 John 4 we find a heavy emphasis on this particular teaching. Of all the commentaries I have read on this passage Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown gives one of the most detailed accounts of a crucial part of 1 John 4:2 -"Jesus Christ is come in the flesh — a twofold truth confessed, that Jesus is the Christ, and that He is come (the Greek perfect tense implies not a mere past historical fact, as the aorist would, but also the present continuance of the fact and its blessed effects) in the flesh (“clothed with flesh”: not with a mere seeming humanity, as the Docetae afterwards taught: He therefore was, previously, something far above flesh). His flesh implies His death for us, for only by assuming flesh could He die (for as God He could not), Heb_2:9, Heb_2:10, Heb_2:14, Heb_2:16; and His death implies His LOVE for us (Joh_15:13). To deny the reality of His flesh is to deny His love, and so cast away the root which produces all true love on the believer’s part (1Jo_4:9-11, 1Jo_4:19). Rome, by the doctrine of the immaculate conception of the Virgin Mary, denies Christ’s proper humanity." There's some good material to think through.
See you on Thursday morning as we encourage one another in knowing, loving, and living the truth of God's word.
