5. Notes


Our God has always been, will always be; has made everything that was ever made; and rules over everything in Heaven and on earth. Our God is one supreme spiritual being, and because God is a spiritual being, He can have three distinct persons; the Father, His Son and the Holy Spirit; while being one spiritual being, one God, our God.

*For this is what the Lord says-- he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited-- he says: "I am the Lord, and there is no other. Isa 45:18

*Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matt 28:19 ESV+

*Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. Jn 14:9-10 ESV+


Our Heavenly Father is an eternal spiritual being, the Master Planner of the whole universe, of everything that ever was created or will be created. He is our one and only true spiritual Father, loves us dearly, and desires us to be His true children.

*But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding. Jer 10:12 NIV+

*Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. Matt 23:9 NKJV


Our Heavenly Father’s Son is an eternal spiritual being; is the Word, the activator, who physically makes the words His Father speaks happen; He physically created this world and everything in it.  

*In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. Jn 1:1-3 KJV

*so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isa 55:11 NIV+


The Son being a spiritual being, would also come down from Heaven and become a physical man, became Jesus in the womb of Mary. This changed the very essence of God; for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have always been, will always be 3 spiritual beings united together as one God. The Son became a physical being also; though He has been and will be the spiritual Son of God from everlasting to everlasting. When God’s Son became the Son of Mary, a tiny physical baby in the womb of Mary; Jesus also became the Son of Man.

*And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jn 1:14 ESV+

*Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God. Ps 90:2 NKJV+


Our God now through Jesus has a Human Physical Body

*For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form, and you have been given fullness in Christ, who is the head over every power and authority. Col 2:9-10 NIV+

*Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 1Ti 1:17 NKJV+


The Son, Jesus, would also change His essence, the essence of God after Jesus physical body-mind-conscience died on the cross to atone for all Believers’ sins. Jesus human spiritual being, His soul-spirit-conscience; was united with God’s Son spiritual being, which was and will always be God. Jesus was now without His human physical being, His body-mind-conscience; and Jesus Holy Human Spiritual Being, His soul-spirit-heart

had become One with God.

*Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!” And having said this he breathed his last. Lk 23:46 ESV+

*For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit ; in which also He went and made proclamation to the spirits now in prison 1Pe 3:18-19 NASB+


The same way believers, when our physical body dies; will have our holy human spiritual being, united as one Jesus in Heaven. As we wait for Jesus to return in the clouds over earth; and give us a glorified body like He has.

*If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Ro 8:10 NASB+

*But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Ro 8:11 NASB+


The last time the Son would change the very essence our God; was when Jesus was given a spiritual glorified body after He physically arose from the dead on Resurrection Day (Easter). Jesus now has a Spiritual Glorified Body, which Jesus will give all believers when He returns in the clouds over earth.

*See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” Lk 24:39 ESV+

*who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Phil 3:21 ESV+


The Son, Jesus, now sits on the right hand of the Father in Heaven above; in a glorified spiritual body interceding for us.

*Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raisedwho is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Ro 8:34 ESV+


The Holy Spirit is an eternal spiritual being, who creates all other spiritual beings, except God who was never created, has always been. The Spirit created all the angelic spiritual beings, and creates the spiritual being (Soul-Spirit-Conscience) within our miniscule physical being in our mother’s womb, giving our physical body life. The Holy Spirit then lives within a believer’s spiritual being; guiding us, sanctifying us, and keeping us spiritually holy; so we can remain children of God. 

*That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Jn 3:6 ESV+

*You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. Ro 8:9 ESV+


2. The reason our God became man was love.


Our Father wanted physical children to love before He created this world.

*just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, Eph 1:4-5 NKJV+


The Son wanted physical brothers and sisters to love, of whom He would not be ashamed. Our Heavenly Father knew Jesus would have to become man, suffer an agonizing physical death upon the cross; to save those who would become our Father’s children. Yet out of our Father’s love and desire to have children, who would love God above all things. Our Heavenly Father created the physical human race.  

*In bringing many sons to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the author of their salvation perfect through suffering. Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers. Heb 2:10 NIV+


The Holy Spirit wanted a family He could love, guide, and be part of.

*The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2Co 13:14 ESV+


For us to love our God above all things; God had to create us with a free will; for without a choice no one can love our God above everything else. Though God knew our free will would cause us to sin; for it was too easy for us to love ourselves, idols and worldly pleasures more than our God.

*Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ Mk 12:29-30 ESV+

*As a result, he does not live the rest of his earthly life for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. 1Pe 4:1 NIV+


Our Father knew Jesus would have to die a horrendous death upon the cross as atonement for the sins of all who would love our God above all things. And out of Father’s love and desire to have children, who would love Him back; He created us. 

*For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17 (NKJV)


Sin was brought into the world by satan; an angelic cherub who was favored by our Father, given much power by Him.

*You were an anointed guardian cherub. I placed you; you were on the holy mountain of God; in the midst of the stones of fire you walked. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created, till unrighteousness was found in you. Eze 28:14-15 ESV+

*You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. Jn 8:44 NIV+


satan desiring to be equal with God, disguised himself as a serpent, to entice Eve to trust him instead of God.

*But the serpent said to the woman,You will not surely die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” 


Then Eve enticed Adam to sin, by choosing Eve over God and eating of the fruit God had forbidden them to eat. Man and woman had now sinned, were no longer holy, could no longer be in the holy presence of our God, and were banished to live on an earth where evil could exist.

*So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate. Gen 3:4-7 ESV+


Our Heavenly Father condemned satan for deceiving Eve, promised a human offspring of Eve’s, Mary’s Son Jesus; would come and crush satan’s head. Though satan would be able to strike Eve’s offspring heels, as Jesus heels were nailed to the cross.

*And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." Gen 3:15 NIV+ This refers to the nail


Jesus was tortured, then died a horrendous death on the cross, and had to endure Hades; to redeem us from our sins.

*and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross , so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. 1Pe 2:24 NASB+


Because Adam chose Eve over our Heavenly Father and committed the second sin; our Father put the curse of death upon Adam. Adam would struggle to survive on earth, and then return to the dust by which God created him.

*Then to Adam He said, "Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it': "Cursed is the ground for your sake; In toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you, And you shall eat the herb of the field. In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread Till you return to the ground, For out of it you were taken; For dust you are, And to dust you shall return."  Gen 3:17-19 NKJV+

*So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. Gen 3:23 NIV+


Adam’s curse of death, would be passed on to every child Adam conceived through his seed (genes/sperm). For all men’s and women’s physical body-mind-conscience can die. Adam’s curse is inherited by all men, and they will pass on Adam’s original sin; Adam’s curse of death. To all the children they conceive; for we all can physically die.

*Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned - Ro 5:12 NIV+

*Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. Ps 51:5 NKJV+


Though Believers’ spiritual beings, our soul-spirit-heart is eternal, is holy when Jesus lives in our hearts.

*Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it. Eccl 12:7 NKJV+

*If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. Ro 8:10 NASB+


3. How Son of God became the Son of Man, without any sin See dh10 8.  When Life Begins


God’s perfect plan of salvation was designed before the world was created, designed so Jesus could come into the world without any sin. God chose Mary, a Jewish woman devoted to God, to become Jesus mother. Though Mary would strive to obey God, Mary like all other women would sin. Yet Mary’s original sin would be passed on only to her daughters; pain in childbirth and desiring men.

*To the woman he said, “I will surely multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children. Your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” Gen 3:16 ESV+


The only human man whose physical being, his body-mind-conscience, was perfectly holy was Adam. Adam was the only man to have no sin carried in his seed-genes-DNA; until he disobeyed God and sinned. From the time of Adam’s original sin until the end of this world, all men will inherit Adam’s original sin; all their children will be conceived in sin

*Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned - Ro 5:12 NIV+

*Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, And in sin my mother conceived me. Ps 51:5 NKJV+


The Holy Spirit kept some of Adam’s seed-genes-DNA before he sinned, to impregnate Mary with. So Mary could conceive Jesus as a holy physical man.

*The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven. 1Co 15:47-49 NIV+

*Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. 1Co 15:45-46 ESV+


The Son of God became Jesus, a human physical man (body-mind-conscience), when the Holy Spirit united Adam’s seed (which was holy, before Adam sinned) with Mary’s seed (women do not inherit Adam’s original sin) to conceive Jesus; a very tiny physical being (body-mind-conscience).

*Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. Matt 1:18 ESV+


Before they came together” means Mary and Joseph, Jesus stepfather, did not have sexual relations; until after they were married and Jesus was born. For Jesus was first in all things.

*When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. Matt 1:24-25 ESV+


In the verse above:

Jewish law considers a bridegroom and bride, who have a signed contract between them, as a married couple; though they will not be married until later on. When Joseph took Mary home as his wife, it is referring the time before they were married, but were betrothed, engaged to be married; though considered a man and a wife to be. Joseph knew her not, means Joseph did not have sexual relations with Mary until after Jesus was born, Mary’s and Jesus ceremonial laws had been completed and then they were married at God’s Temple in Jerusalem. See Jesus Birth

*Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, to be registered with Mary, his betrothed wife, who was with child. Lk 2:4-5 NKJV+


Without Adam’s original sin, the baby Jesus was conceived holy, without sin and would remain sinless. Jesus physical body and mind only died on the cross, when God put all believers’ sins on Jesus. And then God accepted Jesus sacrifice; as atonement for all believers’ sins. Now believers’ spiritual beings (soul-spirit-hearts) could become holy, come into God’s Heavenly Kingdom of Paradise when we die or Jesus returns for us.

*Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devilHeb 2:14 NIV+

*For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2Co 5:21 NKJV+


Jesus was conceived as a Prophet who would show us our God, as our High Priest who would forgive our sins, who would be King over us in Christ’s 1,000 year Kingdom; when Jesus returns to give us glorified bodies. Jesus is our eldest brother; when we come eternally into God’s New Heaven and Earth in glorified bodies.


Jesus was a mighty Prophet revealing the truths of God’s Words in the Scripture, how they would happen on earth; to all who would listen to Him. This included two men on the road to Emmaus, who at this time they not recognize Jesus; as Jesus explained the Scripture to them. Then their eyes were opened to Jesus their Savior; and how His sacrifice on the cross had saved them.

*And He said to them, "What things?" And they said to Him, "The things about Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word in the sight of God and all the people, Lk 24:19 NASB+

*And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. Lk 24:27 NKJV+


Jesus became our High Priest after He died on the cross to atone for our sins. And our Heavenly Father appointed Jesus as our High Priest. For Jesus alone can forgive our sins.

*And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was. So also Christ did not exalt himself to be made a high priest, but was appointed by him who said to him, “You are my Son, today I have begotten you”; Heb 5:4-5 ESV+

*We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. Heb 6:19-20 ESV+


Mary was a cousin of Elizabeth who had John the Baptist in her womb, for Mary’s mother was a sister to Elizabeth. Since Elizabeth’s husband was Zechariahs, a Temple Priest in Jerusalem; Zechariahs had to be a descendant of Aaron. So Mary’s mother and Elizabeth were Levi descendants of Aaron on their Father’s side. Since Mary’s mother and Elizabeth also had the same mother, who had to be a Levite woman who was a virgin to marry be able to marry a Temple Priest in Jerusalem. Since both Mary’s mother and Elizabeth mother and father were Levites descended from Aaron; Mary was like wise a Levite descendant of Aaron on her mother’s side only. 

*A widow, or a divorced woman, or a woman who has been defiled, or a prostitute, these he shall not marry. But he shall take as his wife a virgin of his own people, that he may not profane his offspring among his people, for I am the Lord who sanctifies him. Lev 21:14-15 ESV+


Because Rabbis and Priests had to come from the tribe of Levi, and Mary was a Levite descendant. It enabled Jesus to become a Rabbi and Priest, who could read and teach from the Scripture in the Jewish Synagogues; including Nazareth.

*And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. Lk 4:16 ESV+

*And He began to say to them, "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing." So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, "Is this not Joseph's son?" Lk 4:21-22 NKJV+


In the order of Melchizedek who was both a King and a High Priest.

*Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. Gen 14:18 NKJV+

*The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind, “You are a priest forever after the order of Melchizedek.” Ps 110:4 ESV+

*We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain, where Jesus has gone as a forerunner on our behalf, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek. Heb 6:19-20 ESV+


God promised the Messiah (Christ) would descend from King David’s bloodline. Since all people descended from Adam, including King David; Adam through his genes/DNA passed on King David’s Judean roots to Jesus. For Adam before he sinned, was the only man who did not carry his original sin in genes/DNA; was the only man who could conceive a man Jesus; without any sin.


Jesus was the Lion of the tribe of Judea, the root of King David; which all great Kings of Israel descended from. While Mary was from the priestly tribe of Levi; which allowed Jesus to be our High Priest; a Priest and Rabbi who could read, prophesy, and teach in the Jewish Temples and synagogues.   

*And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” Rev 5:5 ESV+

*For it is evident that our Lord was descended from Judah, a tribe with reference to which Moses spoke nothing concerning priests. Heb 7:14 NASB+


Jesus became and remains the spiritual King over Israel forever. 

Jesus became the spiritual King over Israel forever after He began His ministry; replacing King David, who was the greatest spiritual King over Israel until this time. Jesus became the spiritual King of Believers’, after He was resurrected from the dead, after shedding His blood on the cross for our sins. And Jesus will become king over the physical world after He returns and sets up His 1,000 year Kingdom.

*Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!Jn 1:49 ESV+


Jesus became and is the spiritual King of all Believers’.

*concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who was born of the seed of David according to the flesh, and declared to be the Son of God with power according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead. Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, among whom you also are the called of Jesus Christ; Ro 1:3-6 NKJV+


And will become the King over the physical world, when He returns and establishes His 1,000 year Kingdom on earth.

*Blessed and holy is the one who has a part in the first resurrection; over these the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with Him for a thousand years. Rev 20:6 NASB+


At the time Jesus was soon to be born, the Roman government issued a decree to tax Israel. This required Joseph, Jesus stepfather, and Mary His mother to go to King David’s hometown of Bethlehem; to be counted and registered to pay this tax. And the Scriptures prophesied that Bethlehem would be the town where Jesus was to be born; as the ruler and shepherd over Israel.

*"In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written: "'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.' " Matt 2:5-6 NIV+


Mary’s father was from the tribe of Judea, being a descendant of King David-Nathaniel-Heli  See complete Genealogy in Luke 3:23-38

*Jesus, when he began his ministry, was about thirty years of age, being the son (as was supposed) of Joseph, the son of Heli, Lk 3:23 ESV+


“As was Supposed” in the verse above means many believed at that time, even now; that Jesus was really born through the genes/DNA of a physical father; Jesus stepfather Joseph. This belief is a heresy, nothing supporting it in the Bible; for that would mean Jesus tiny physical body was conceived in sin. But Jesus physical body knew no sin, until our sins were laid on Jesus as He died on the cross; as atonement for all believes’ sins. 


For Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit in Mary’s wom; using Adam’s genes/DNA before Adam sinned.

*the son of Melea, the son of Menna, the son of Mattatha, the son of Nathan, the son of David, Lk 3:31 ESV


God did not allow Jesus to be a descendant of King Solomon, for in his later years Solomon made burning pits for the demonic women he brought into his house to please them. Watched them burn their babies and children as a sacrifice to satan and his demons. See 1Ki 1-13

*Then Solomon built a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, and for Molech the abomination of the Ammonites, on the mountain east of Jerusalem. And so he did for all his foreign wives, who made offerings and sacrificed to their gods. 1Ki 11:7-8 ESV+


We know this because Solomon’s bloodline descendants included Jechoniah; a man so evil God would not allow any of King Jechonia’s descendants to be King over Israel. None of Jechoniah’s offspring will sit on the throne of David; the throne Jesus will rule from in His 1,000 Year Kingdom on earth. This curse on   Jechoniah kept Solomon from being part of Jesus bloodline.  

*and Amos the father of Josiah, and Josiah the father of Jechoniah and his brothers, at the time of the deportation to Babylon. Matt 1:10-11 ESV+

*This is what the Lord says: "Record this man as if childless, a man who will not prosper in his lifetime, for none of his offspring will prosper, none will sit on the throne of David or rule anymore in Judah." Jer 22:30 NIV+ Refers to Jehoiakim; See Jer 22:22-30 for all


Yet Jesus stepfather Joseph was a Judean, who was from the tribe of David through Solomon, the greatest King Israel ever had in human wisdom and wealth. Joseph showed the strength and power Jesus would have in ruling over His 1,000 year Kingdom on earth. When Jesus returns with perfect wisdom and love to establish His 1,000 year Kingdom Jesus will here on earth. See Joseph’s complete blood line in Matt 1:1-17. 

*Jesus stepfather who was engaged, betrothed to Mary, was Joseph. Joseph was a Judean from the tribe of David; his father was Jacob who was a descendant of King David.  Matt 1:16 NASB+

*and Jesse the father of David the king. And David was the father of Solomon by the wife of Uriah, and Solomon the father of Rehoboam, and Rehoboam the father of Abijah, and Abijah the father of Asaph, Matt 1:6-7 ESV+

*And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name written, "KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." Rev 19:16 NASB+


The Holy Spirit used Adam’s seed (genes/sperm) to conceive Jesus physical being (body-mind-conscience) within Mary’s womb; and when Jesus tiny body-mind-conscience attached to Mary’s womb. The Holy Spirit created Jesus human spiritual being (soul-spirit-heart) within Jesus tiny physical body (body-mind-soul) in Mary’s womb; giving Jesus human physical body life also.

*For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Ps 139:13-16 NIV+ 

*You send forth Your Spirit, they are created; And You renew the face of the earth. Ps 104:30 NKJV+


Jesus was now the Son of God, and the Son of Man. The same words Jesus used to reassure His disciples He was God, before Judas left. Then Jesus offered the Lord’s Supper to them, and was crucified.  

*"That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Jn 3:6 NASB+

*So, when he had gone out, Jesus said, "Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in Him.  If God is glorified in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and glorify Him immediately.


The spiritual being of the Son of God would not use His power over Jesus physical being or human spiritual being; so Jesus would live His physical life on earth as a normal Jewish man. Jesus would be tempted in every respect as we are. Yet Jesus lived His life without sinning, the only one worthy enough to give His holy physical body on the cross as a ransom for our sins.

*Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are--yet was without sin. Heb 4:14-15 NIV+


Jesus received all of His spiritual power through the Holy Spirit, after He was anointed to begin His ministry at the age of 30. For years Jesus would preach the Gospel, heal the sick, and set free all who were oppressed by the devil; before He gave His physical life on the cross to save us from our sins.  

*you yourselves know what happened throughout all Judea, beginning from Galilee after the baptism that John proclaimed: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. He went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him. Ac 10:37-38 ESV+

*"The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; Lk 4:18 NKJV+


4. The Son became man, became Jesus in Mary’s womb

    Was conceived around the time of Christmas, we believe it was on Christmas Day 

    Jesus was born 9 months later on Day of Atonement Tishri 10, 5BC


Jesus was conceived in the Jewish month of Tevet, in the early evening. This would be on Christmas Eve Dec 24, 5 BC our time. As the Jewish day is from sunset to sunrise, while our days are from 12AM to 12 PM.


Jewish months are based on a full moon, for all Jewish months begin on a full moon which is from days 14 to 15 of each month. This can cause a fluctuation of a Jewish calendar year of being 12 days shorter to 20 days longer because our years are based on the sun. The days of the week for Jewish Ceremonial Feasts continually change, for full moon year only has 254 days in it; our years have 365 days in them and only change in a leap year.

See Day of Atonement and Jesus Born on Tishri 10, 5BC. This allows for the 10 extra days in 5. Nov 15-Dec 25 below, as well as pregnancies can be a few days different in the birth of Elizabeth’s and Mary’s babies.


John was conceived June15-July 15 *7BC – July 15-Aug 15 (1) Aug 15-Sept 15 (2) Sept 15-Oct 15 (3) *6BC Oct 15-Nov 15 (5) Nov 15-Dec 25 6 months before Jesus Dec 25 – Jan 15 (7) Jan 25 – Feb 15 (8) – March 15 to (9) April 15 *6BC when John was born 0n Passover Day 

The months of Adar and Adar1 were the months Israel used to adjust their calendar, based on the lunar year of 254 days. Adar1 could change to be 10 to 15 days longer or shorter, or not be used at all. This allows for the extra 10 days in (5) above to be added on Tevet; the 10 days needed to go from our Dec 15 to Dec 25 above. Also pregnancies can vary a few days in length in Elizabeth’s and Mary’s babies. See Jesus Born 11.


Jesus was conceived on Dec 25 *6BC – Jan 25-Feb 25 (1) – Feb 25-March 25 (2) – March 15-April 25 (3) – April 25-May 25 (4) – May 25-June 25 (5) – June 25-July 25 (6)  –July 25-Aug 25 (7) – Aug 25-Sept 25 (8) Sept25-Oct25 *5BC (9) when Jesus was born on the Day of Atonement


The Father’s plan of salvation was completed not by chance, but through His wisdom, His design. All things would work together, happen at the appropriate time, so the plan could be completed. There would be many miracles, blessings, and hardships given in implementing this plan. The plan began with the announcement of a messenger, John, who would precede Jesus and prepare the way for Him.

*"See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come," says the Lord Almighty. Mal 3:1 NIV+


John was conceived around Tammuz (June/July) 15th 6BC

Look at intimate details of our Father’s plan. Zechariah, a temple priest at Jerusalem, and his wife Elizabeth loved God, prayed to Him for a child, yet they were old and childless. The Father had saved them for a special task, would give them a special gift, a son, though they were too old to have children. An angel appeared to Zechariah in the temple and told him that his wife would have a son, and they should call him John. Told in Luke 1:8-25

*But they had no children, because Elizabeth was barren; and they were both well along in years. Lk 1:7 NIV+

*But the angel said to him, "Do not be afraid, Zacharias, for your petition has been heard, and your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you will give him the name John. Lk 1:13 NASB+


The angel also said John was not to drink wine or liquor and that he would be filled with the Spirit while he was still in the womb. The angel foretold that John would be a great prophet like Elijah, preparing the way for our Lord. When his father Zechariah would not believe what the angel said, the angel made him mute until John was born.

*"For he will be great in the sight of the Lord; and he will drink no wine or liquor, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit while yet in his mother's womb. Lk 1:15 NASB+

*He will also go before Him in the spirit and power of Elijah, 'to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,' and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord." Lk 1:17 NKJV+


After John was born Zechariah was filled with the Spirit and amazed listeners as he eloquently told many how his son would be a great prophet. These special announcements, happenings, gained notoriety, would be remembered when John began his ministry. They helped him with his credibility, and the ability to get people to listen to him. Luke 1:67-79

*And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, Lk 1:76 ESV+


Jesus told us there was no greater prophet than John and he will always be remembered as John the Baptizer. John would be the forerunner for Jesus from his conception, until Jesus began His ministry. Because Zechariah was a priest, John would also inherit his father’s position as a priest. As a priest, and prophet, John could consecrate Jesus to fulfill the Old Covenant Laws that were required before Jesus could begin His ministry.

*Jesus replied, "Let it be so now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness." Then John consented. Matt 3:15 NIV+

*For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; Lk 7:ptn28 NKJV+


The time clock for the Son to come down and become man began when Elizabeth conceived. After Elizabeth conceived she would remain to herself for 5 months, praising and thanking God for the blessing of her son. In Elizabeth’s 6th month of pregnancy (not the 6th month of the Jewish year), the angel Gabriel was sent to Mary announcing she would conceive Jesus. John would always be the time clock for Jesus, preceding the Messiah by 6 plus months. 

*After this his wife Elizabeth became pregnant and for five months remained in seclusion. "The Lord has done this for me," she said. "In these days he has shown his favor and taken away my disgrace among the people." Lk 1:24-25 NIV+

*Now in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, Lk 1:26 ASV


Mary was a young woman who lived in Nazareth, which was in the northern part of Israel, and it was here where the Angel Gabriel came to her. She was a virgin, who was engaged to be married and was probably between 12 to 18 years old; for this was the customary age for young women to be pledged to be married. 

*So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: "Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which is translated, "God with us." Matt 1:22-23 NKJV+


Our Father’s detailed plan chose Mary for different reasons. Mary was faithful, humble and obedient to God, trusted in Him and would be honored to be the mother of His Son. She was engaged to Joseph, so there would be an earthly stepfather for Jesus. Mary and Joseph were descendants of David, as prophesied in the Old Testament. Mary was also a relative of Elizabeth, and would be accepted into her home as a house guest. This would give Mary a companion she could confide in, when she was in danger; an engaged woman with God’s Son Jesus in her womb. The verse below tells us Elizabeth was in her 6th month ofher pregnancy when God sent the angel Gabriel to Mary.

*In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin's name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, "Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you." Lk 1:26-28 NIV+

*Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be barren is in her sixth month. For nothing is impossible with God." "I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. Lk 1:36-37 NIV+


Mary was confused when the angel appeared, yet her she was able to clearly understand what the angel said. Yet Mary was confused on how she could conceive a baby for she was still a unmarried virgin. Yet she had faith in God, believed the Holy Spirit had the power to conceive a baby within her womb. Though she really did not completely understand how this would happen, how she would conceive a baby; how the Holy Spirit would bring the Son of God as a baby boy into her womb.

*Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with GodYou will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever; his kingdom will never end." Lk 1:29-33 NIV+

*"How will this be," Mary asked the angel, "since I am a virgin?" The angel answered, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Lk 1:34-35 NIV+


Mary was overwhelmed, yet believed with God all things are possible, and was willing to do whatever would have her do. After the angel left, Mary continued thinking about the miracle which had just happened, that she was carrying God’s Son in her womb; that she would give birth to the Son of God and call Him Jesus.

"I am the Lord's servant," Mary answered. "May it be to me as you have said." Then the angel left her. Lk 1:38 NIV+


We must always remember that Jesus did not come down from Heaven to save us. It was the Son of God who came down from Heaven, an almighty eternal spiritual being, with no beginning or no end; and became a man, became Jesus in the womb of Mary through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus became a man on earth, not in Heaven.

*God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship in spirit and truth. Jn 4:24 ASV

*The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jn 1:14 NIV+

*For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"? And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him." Heb 1:5-6 NIV+


The Son of God had to become a physical being like we were in every way, yet remain holy without sins; so He would be an acceptable sacrifice to redeem us from our sins. The Son became Jesus, did not sin, and shed His blood on the cross to atone for our sins.

*but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. Phil 2:7 NIV+

*For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Heb 2:17 NIV+


The Son of God and Jesus the Son of Man became one spiritual/physical being; Jesus now sits at the right hand of our Father. The Father, His Son Jesus in a glorified spiritual body, and the Holy Spirit are spiritually united together as one spiritual being; one supreme God yet with three distinct spiritual beings, and one human glorified body; Jesus. 

*And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began. Jn 17:5 NIV+

*Hereafter the Son of Man will sit on the right hand of the power of God." Then they all said, "Are You then the Son of God?" So He said to them, "You rightly say that I am."  Lk 22:69-70 NKJV+

*The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. 2Co 13:14 ESV+


At Christmas, we come to celebrate that great announcement the angel Gabriel made long ago; that the Son of God would come down from Heaven to become a physical man, became Jesus, to save us from our sins.

*The angel answered and said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; and for that reason the holy Child shall be called the Son of God  Lk 1:35 NASB+


5. Notes


a. Time above Our present day calendar is based on the sun; the Jewish calendar is based on moon. See Jesus Born Tishri 10, 5BC 10. which explains how to adjust Jewish time, calendar dates, and years to our present day time


b. The only date we are sure of is Jesus birth was on the Day of Atonement Tishri 10, 5BC. This was a yearly Jewish Ceremonially Day when God came down from Heaven and forgave the Jewish faithful sins, which made them holy for 1 more year. What other day would Jesus be born on except the most holiest day of the Jewish year; when He came into the world to forgive our sins, and make us holy. What day or month this day was when Jesus was born, we do not know; except it was between our months of Sept 15 – Oct 15 on the Jewish calendar. More Info See Day of Atonement


c. The old serpent satan and his demons tried to use December 25 as a celebration day for their witchcraft and pagan worship festivals; to hide the day when the Son of God would become man. This often involved using snakes (serpents) in their rituals as they seduced men and women to sin against God. Our Father allowed this knowing in the future believers would take this day back, celebrate this day when the Son became man, became Jesus. For Jesus came to destroy satan, to destroy any power satan or his demons have over us. And give all believers eternal life in our Heavenly Father’s New Heaven and Earth.  

*Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. Heb 2:14-15 NIV+
