Why Christ Needed To Be Fully God and Fully Man – rebroadcast from 04/19/14

Thursday, September 25, 2014

Guest: Greg Gilbert, pastor and author, What Is The Gospel

“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

What took place on this weekend 2000 years ago was the most significant event in all of history.

Jesus Christ, having lived a perfect life, offered Himself on the cross as the perfect sacrifice for our sin, satisfying God’s wrath and justice for our sin. And then Christ rose victoriously over sin and death three days later, thus providing the one way for all of mankind to be reconciled with God.

To accomplish His work, Jesus Christ was and needed to be fully God and fully man. This is known as “the hypostatic union of Christ.” Why is this and how can that be? And what aspects of the gospel message are sometimes overlooked by biblical Christians? And what does the Christian’s union with Christ mean?

Greg Gilbert, senior pastor of Third Avenue Baptist Church in Louisville, Kentucky and author of What Is The Gospel, joins us this Easter weekend on The Christian Worldview to answer these questions and others.

Fully Man and Fully God (Sept. 29 – Oct. 5, 2014)

Why did Jesus need to be fully man and fully God? This is David Wheaton with The Christian Worldview Radio Program.

It’s known as the hypostatic union of Christ—that Jesus had both a human nature and and a divine nature. The Bible says: the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus is the Son of Man and the Son of God. He needed to be human in order to be our perfect representative and substitutionary sacrifice before God, and He needed to be divine in order to fully exhaust the wrath of God for the incalculable sin of mankind.

5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders? 5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else. 2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry. 3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41). 4. Be like the...
