2. Summary of the Life of Jesus

Massacre of the innocents Egypt. Archelaus therefore go to Galilee. v22

Four (half) brothers Matt 13:55 James, Joseph, Simon, Judas - and sisters .
3. The Virgin Birth Matt 1:18 ( v31: Jesus name is chosen by God.)
Meaning: Lk 1:30-33 v32 – He will be called the Son of the most High (=God)
vv34,35 – the Son of God because of the virgin birth. No human father.
v32 – The Lord God will give him therefore not God.
4. Jesus is not God – a consistent picture from all the Apostles
Acts 10:38 God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
v38 For God was with him
v40 God raised him on the third day
v42 Appointed by God to be judge
Three clear reasons for believing that Jesus is not God:
Careful distinction between Jesus and God Acts 10 + Eph 1:2 + more than 150 others!
Jesus has a God Eph 1:3, 17 (Rev 3:12)
Jesus died – God is the living God who sustains the universe
5. Jesus shows what God is like
[Heb 1:1-4 cfHeb 2:5]
