If God were to become a man, one would suppose that He would lead a most amazing life. Jesus Christ did, in that He: was born of a virgin, manifested miracles and had a lasting and universal influence on humanity.
Luke 1:31 records Gabriel’s words to Mary, “And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call His name Jesus.”
Luke 7:11-17 records the event of the raising of the widow’s son at Nain. Luke 7:14, 15 tell us, “And He came and touched the bier; and they that bare him stood still. And He said, ’Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.’ And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. . .”
The facts that after two thousand plus years men still worship and serve Christ is a testament to his three-year ministry. “He is the greatest influence in the world today. There is, as it has been well said, a fifth Gospel being written--the work of Jesus Christ in the hearts and lives of men and nations” (McDowell, TNE, 322).
