We came face to face with the fact that Jesus is God.
This morning, we will come face to face with the humanity of Christ.
The Lord Jesus Christ is “intensely” human, and He is “intensely” God.
Our passage today is an extremely moving depiction of His humanity.
He is human to the core. Human in the innermost being.
Human in the way we experience most deeply what it means to be human.
Why did He weep?
It described a horse snorting. Thus, to snort with anger or to groan audibly.
To have an intense, strong feeling of concern; to be indignant.
In His human spirit. It touched on His relationship with God, with His Father.
tarasso; to stir or agitate (roil water).
to cause great mental distress, inner agitation. To be troubled or disturbed.
What made Jesus indignant?
WHO made Jesus indignant?
Jesus is facing the death of His friend Lazarus. His friends are suffering.
GEN 3:1-6, 17-19
Jesus was indignant at the one who had the power of death - the devil.
What does it mean to be human?
Jesus was perfect humanity. He was sinless.
He was human in every way that we are - excepting one.
He was not fallen.
But nor was He untouched by the consequences of the Fall.
What was the inescapable result of the Fall for the human race?
Was Jesus affected by death? Did He experience death?
He bore the consequences, the weight, of the Fall in His own humanity.
He came to earth, and became human, first and foremost, so that He could die for us.
