GOD THE SON
God the Son (Christology): There is a rationale for developing and offering the material in God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit; a reason why particular studies about God are presented. Assume a writer has the audacity to write on a number of topics. Why does he or she choose certain subjects out of thousands? What prompts selectivity? The answer is simple. Logically, more important subjects demand primary consideration. Of course, those of us who love God never tire of learning more about the One who exceeds all understanding. This is true even though every attempt to more fully comprehend God becomes a reminder that God looms so far above us that our intellectualism is infantile before Him. Over a century ago the English preacher C.H. Spurgeon made an observation that still has power: “He who often thinks of God will have a larger mind than the man who simply plods around this narrow globe.” As one might examine a multifaceted diamond, we seek to examine the Biblical teaching about God from different angles for the light that each reflects.
A major theme in studying God the Father, God the Son and God the Spirit is that one’s view of God will ultimately shape one’s religion and life. As we enter a new millennium, fear has arisen among believers and nonbelievers alike. But through the fullness of God we have attempted to unfold the saga of God’s relationship with man as a wondrous story of God’s redemptive love and offering of reconciliation to all humanity, showing how fear is not what is required but respect and humility as we watch and participate in God’s plan for us.
God the Son probes the existence, nature, and activity of the Son before His incarnation as they reflect the wisdom and power of the Father. After His incarnation, Jesus is studied as the “Son of Man,” King, and Messiah. While His Deity is reflected in His self-awareness, that Deity is confessed in His “I AM” statements. The humanity of His incarnation is evidenced in non- biblical records, and apparent in His baptism, prayers, temptations, and death. Redemption was His mission; resurrection was His victory; exaltation established His authority. This section of God's Fullness takes us to the heart of the Father through His Son. As in God the Father and God the Holy Spirit, the language is designed to promote communication between reader and subject, teacher and student.
