HP: The issue of the incarnation, and to the nature of it, has been brought into question. It is purported that Jesus did not have the same ‘sin nature’ as man. This should provide fodder for a lively discussion on the nature of Christ and His physical lineage. It would appear to me, that if in fact Christ did not partake of the nature all men are born with, He could not be tempted in all ways as men are. He could not be a man ‘like unto us’ for He has not our nature. Such a notion would also destroy the clear Scriptural lineage presented of Christ as being a direct physical descendant of his earthly father Joseph. Scripture is clear. He took not upon Himself the nature of angels, but took upon Himself the nature of men. Christ had a physical lineage tracable back to Adam. Those believing that Christ did not in fact take upon Himself the nature of men, should establish that fact by Scripture.
