    We Know that Jesus was both God and man during N. T. times. My questions are:

    Is Jesus both God and man now?

    Will Jesus be both God and man throughout eternity?

    If not, when did the change occur?


    Your thoughts?

    Jesus became man at the time of the Incarnation. He ascended into heaven and is still a man now, as well as being fully God.

    I would say yes, based on...

    -He received a glorified human body that ate fish after his resurection, it was that body that ascended into heaven, not just Jesus' Spirit.

    -He will be worshiped as THE Lamb for all eternity (Rev. 5).

    -Scripture says he "ever lives to make intercession for us." and "there is one mediator between god and man, the MAN Jesus Christ." There is no indication that this priestly role has an ending to it, and therefore no END to when Jesus Christ ceases being a "man".

    -1 Cor. 15: points to a Son who will be over all, yet subject to his heavenly father for all eternity.

    actually, god the Son became a man, and THAT was when He became jesus as to his humanity, for his Sonship was and is eternally from the father, but his humanity became "real" when he incarnated as a man named yeshua!

    And he is forever more both god and man, as he is ONLY being to exist who is both Deity and human in his dual natures!
