Proof of Christ’s Humanity





He had human parentage:

And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. (Luke 1:30)

And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. (Luke 1:31)

He had friends:

Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you.(John 15:14)

Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you.(John 15:15)

He had purpose/goals and pursued them:

And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth.(Mark 1:38)

For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.(Luke 19:10)

He was tempted:

For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. (Hebrews 2:18)

He had compassion:

Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.(Luke 7:12)

And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.(Luke 7:13)

And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.(Luke 7:14)

He was angered and grieved:

And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.(Mark 3:4)

And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.(Mark 3:5)

He experienced joy:

In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.(Luke 10:21)

He wrestled with God’s will:

And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.(Matthew 26:39)

He bled and died:

But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:(John 19:33)

But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.(John 19:34)

He experienced tiredness and thirst:

Now Jacob's well was there. Jesus therefore, being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well: and it was about the sixth hour. (John 4:6)

There cometh a woman of Samaria to draw water: Jesus saith unto her, Give me to drink.(John 4:7)
