Jesus Christ- full humanity and divinity in one person.  The Chalcedonian Creed established the two natures of Christ in one person–

“one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, only begotten, to be acknowledged in two natures, inconfusedly, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably; the distinction of natures being by no means taken away by the union, but rather the property of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not parted or divided into two persons, but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ;”

God becoming flesh- the infinite one becoming finite-  is a mystery to the human mind.  But it is the teaching of scripture that Jesus of Nazareth is God in the flesh.  Listen to this message and hear how God coming into the world in the person of Jesus was different than God’s appearances in the Old Testament, as well as how the incarnation helps us understand our relationship with God as followers of Christ.
