Q & A: Is Jesus Still A Man?

Is Jesus Still A Man?
Ask a Bible Teacher
by Jack Kelley

Question: In this week's teaching, you mentioned that Jesus is still in human form, represented by the inference of the Lamb that appeared to the slain. This is an issue that has been bouncing around in my mind for about a year or so now. (I'll try to put this in some logical question, but I'm still not clear on this issue yet.)

I know Jesus did not lose his divinity by being born human. I know (and yet I don't full realize) that Jesus was separated from His Father on the Cross when the global sins were heaped on Him. But He was restored at the Resurrection.

I understand (though not fully) the resulting work for my behalf, but what are the lasting effects for Jesus based on His decision to become human and sacrifice Himself for mankind? (I think the Gospels or one of the Epistles talk about Him laying down his sonship (I think) and taking up a form of a servant and then in Rev 5 being found still in human form.)

I have the impression that this is more than Jesus coming to earth, dying, and going back to heaven, picking up where He left off. Sorry this is so long, but I'm still grappling with this. I look forward to your insight. Peace.

Answer: Two things appear to be fairly clear regarding the changes brought about by the Lord's first coming. One is the fact that He took on human form forever, right down to the scars in his hands feet and side.(Rev. 5:6) And the other is that he gave up a portion of His inheritance so that we could have ours. (Romans 8:17)

I'm one who believes that some sort of permanent change in the trinity took place at the cross but I can't yet explain just what it is. The key may be in the combination of Hebrew and Aramaic He used when it happened, ("Eloi. Eloi Lama Sabachthani") I don't think it's coincidental that it was written down in the original and then translated, so we could study the actual words He spoke.

When Jesus came out of the tomb, He came out as a man in a resurrection body, and when we see Him in Rev 5, it appears that He's still in that form. If so then there's a man on the throne of God today. And Philippians 2 5-11 explains that though He became a servant, God has exalted Him to the highest place and so the servant has become our King. Ephesians 1:20 says He's been seated at the right hand of God, far above all authority. power, and dominion and every title that can be given.

So He's no longer a servant, but King of the Universe. And yet He's still a man.
