Who Is Jesus?

What is the greatest miracle of all time?

Some might say it was the creation of the universe and indeed that is a worthy candidate for the title “The Greatest Miracle of All Time.” To make something out of nothing is a concept beyond comprehension. There are no physiological laws to explain it.

However, that isn’t the greatest miracle of all time. That title belongs to the God of all creation transforming Himself into a homo sapien. How could all that He is become as little as we are?

“For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell.”  (Colossians 1: 19)

“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.” (Colossians 2: 9) The Godhead is a reference to all that constitutes the attributes of God, such as:

God is infinite. Unlike us, God has no limits or boundaries. That’s Jesus.

God is self-existent. Unlike everything else He had no beginning.

God is eternal. He is not bound by the dimension of time. 

God is self-sufficient. All creation relies on God for existence, but He has no need for anything.

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.” (Colossians 1: 15 – 17)

Jesus, “who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God.” (Philippians 2: 6) There are two parts to this. The first part, “being in the form of God,” refers to the nature of the Lord Jesus before His incarnation. The second part, “thought it not robbery to be equal with God,” deals primarily with the attitude that the Lord had when He came in the flesh.

It is said of Jesus He “emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.  Therefore, God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name,  so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2: 7 – 11 EST)

By emptying Himself is meant He never used His supernatural nature for Himself. However, retaining it He was able to perform miracles for others.

Whose footprints were those in the Judean sands? Jesus.

Whose shadow was that on the streets of Jerusalem? Jesus.

Whose red blood was shed on Calvary? Jesus.

Who is that who promised to meet all your needs? Immanuel, God with us.

That is the greatest miracle of all time.
