open book with fallen tree leaves

Welcome to the Book of John chapter 3 verse 16

For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

God gave His only-begotten Son to the fallen world – becoming one of the human family, forever to retain His human nature.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder; Isaiah 9:6.

In taking our nature, He has bound Himself to humanity by a tie that is never to be broken.

This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Acts 1:11.

God has adopted human nature in the person of His Son. Moreover, has carried the same into the highest heaven. It is the Son of man who shares the throne of the universe.

Furthermore, For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens; He is not ashamed to call us brethren. Hebrews 7:26; Hebrews 2:11

Thus In Christ the family of earth and the family of heaven are bound together.

The glorified Christ is our brother.

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1 Timothy 3:16.
