4. The Son

4. The Son

God the eternal Son became incarnate in Jesus Christ. Through Him all

things were created, the character of God is revealed, the salvation of

humanity is accomplished, and the world is judged. Forever truly God, He

became also truly human, Jesus the Christ. He was conceived of the Holy

Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived and experienced temptation as

a human being, but perfectly exemplified the righteousness and love of

God. By His miracles He manifested God’s power and was attested as

God’s promised Messiah. He suffered and died voluntarily on the cross for

our sins and in our place, was raised from the dead, and ascended to

heaven to minister in the heavenly sanctuary in our behalf. He will come

again in glory for the final deliverance of His people and the restoration of

all things. (Isa 53:4-6; Dan 9:25-27; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-3, 14; 5:22;
