Bible Study Outlines

Volume 1, Lesson 4
by C.I. Scofield

The Humanity of Christ

It is of utmost importance to hold clearly and in Scriptural proportion the truth of the two-fold personality of the Lord Jesus Christ. Most heresies can be traced to error on this point. We must not let His humanity veil His deity; nor, on the other hand, forget that He is a man.

  1. The Humanity of Christ is shown:
    1. By His birth and growth
    2. By His human body
      • Hebrews 2:14 - "Flesh and blood"
      • John 4:6 - "Being wearied"
      • John 19:34 - "Came there out blood"
      • Luke 24:39 - "A spirit hath not flesh and bones." He came from the grave with a human body.
      • Luke 24:50,51 - "Lifted up His hands... carried up into heaven." He went into heaven with a human body.
      • Acts 1:11 - "Same Jesus... so come." He will return with a human body.
    3. By His human soul
    4. By His human spirit
  2. The purpose of His incarnation was:
    1. To manifest (show forth) God
      • John 1:18 - "The... Son... hath declared Him"
      • John 14:9 - "He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father"
    2. To die for our sins
    3. To become our High Priest
      • Hebrews 2:17 - "Like unto His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest"
      • Hebrews 4:15 - "High Priest... without sin"
    4. To show believers how to live
    5. To be the King of Israel
