Early reviews of the “Fully Human” message series are mixed. By that I mean, some of you are struggling with the concepts of Jesus as being FULLY human. The idea of being like us “in every respect, yet without sin” is a little hard to fathom.
Most of us tend to think Jesus was mostly God and on autopilot as He went through His time on earth. But, this week’s Scripture add to the idea of His humanity when it says, “Although he was a son, he learned obedience…” (Hebrews 5:8)
How could someone who never sinned learn obedience? How could someone who always obeyed learn to obey more? And, anyway, how does someone learn to obey? This Sunday, we will continue to delve into the life of Jesus as on “born of Mary” (human).
