Can Jesus Christ be called as a Godman ?

    Jesus Christ is known as the son of God.

    Since it is known that Jesus has lived the life of a man on earth and since most people believe him to be God, can we call Jesus as a Godman ?

        Personally, I wouldn't.

        It is sufficient to simply say that He was both at the same time and let those who understand that, understand that.  To say that he's a Godman would confuse the easily confused even more.
          He is no longer a man.

              Yes just as we will be one day if we stay the course. The angel told the disciples that this same Jesus will return in like manner. His flesh is glorified and is different than the flesh we have today.

              Don't get me wrong, I believe Jesus walked as a man but had the spirit of God within Him. He told the pharisees, "Tear down this temple and I will build it again in three days. (speaking of His body)" I love how He said He would build it again not my Father.

              I just love the Word of God. big_smilebig_smilebig_smilebig_smilebig_smilebig_smile

                Editing to Amen loving the Word of God!!!


                On the view of Christ's being a man, I understand, but do not concur.

                I believe the "in like manner" was simply meaning that He will come back quickly and from the sky, same way He ascended.  And of course He will be the same Jesus, because He doesn't change since He is God. 

                Thanks for the discussion, Sir Dent;  I hope you and yours are doing well and are Highly Blessed these days!

                  Always blessed.

                  In my post before the point that I was trying to make most was, "This same Jesus." Though He is God, He is also a flesh and blood man. That is how I see it.

                  It is time to hot the shower now and get ready for church. Will check back later.

                    It sure is nice to see how Christians agree on the finer points of their religion, the confidence in their harmony leaves one with a feeling of wanting to join right in and accept the tenets from the word of their god, so well defined, so definitive and decisive.

                    And, they complain that non-believers don't have a clue.  roll

                Amen, SirDent!  You do believe that he is one with the Father and the Holy Spirit, don't you?  But Jesus does have a human body, while being present everywhere like the Father and the Spirit.  What an amazing God he is as he reveals himself!  He is certainly worthy of our praise!

                Yes, getitrite.  I believe that God is above and beyond our reasoning powers, because he's God and I'm not--I'm only his creature!  I believe on the basis of the Bible that the Father as the first Person is equal in status with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, but the three Persons have different functions or roles.  For example, the Father created the universe through the second Person (later to become Jesus, the God-man) by the Spirit's power.  Yet, all are one God, not three Gods, as the Bible also says.  I can't figure out his mysterious math (1+1+1=1), but I believe that he is that way as he revealed himself in the Bible.  Who are humans to try to figure God out?  If we could, we would be equal with him in reasoning abilities.  That's not possible because we're only limited creatures, not the unlimited Creator.  That's what I believe; you can believe or disbelieve as you wish.

                  Nice to see you insult yourself instead of other people doing it. lol lol
                  So you're willing to believe in things you cannot prove actually exist since you yourself cannot rationalize the sad equation(1+1+1=1)? So, you assume other people cannot figure it out either. How nice of you. hmm
                  Because it makes a difference in knowing truth from lie. wink smile
                  It's not that difficult. hmm
                  You may be limited, due to your thinking, but do not compare your irrationally rationalized belief of limitations to others, who you have no knowledge of or know about.
                  Yes, many people are aware of your belief, as you've done more posting in the forums than you have writing hubs. Your motive is not to educate but brainwash others. How nice of you? hmm

                  Btw- (1+1+1=1) - Consciousness + Subconsciousness + Conscience = One Human.

                  If you would like a different reference - Knowledge(learning) + Wisdom + Awareness = One Human Being Potential(i.e. GOD).

          Brenda, what makes you say that Jesus is no longer a man?  He showed his body with the scars from his crucifixion to his disciples after he rose from the dead and ate broiled fish at least twice in their presence.  I believe that he is fully God with all of God's qualities and fully human, according to the Bible, God's Word.  You can believe what you want.  I'm curious to hear your response.

        Jesus as man adopted the attitudes of God. In this sense he was One with God. If we also adopt Gods ways we too are like Him therefore One with Him and also One with the Lord Christ....in essence we are all One but appear as many.......God is not an entity that can be perceived through the senses,.. but that does not mean He cannot be known. In fact to know Him is to be Him. In reality we are all made in His image which is not in essence our physical appearance but in the sense of BEING!

          Hi friend Ashmi

          I agree with you. Jesus was talking in parables; he did not mean it literally. He talked in terms of the OTBible which is clear in this respect. Christians understand it wrongly. Jesus never claimed to be God or Son of God, in literal terms.

            This is not talking in parables, nor is it anything but literal truth:

            Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

            If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well.

            With this statement Christ declared that He was the ONLY way to God, and positioned Himself so that all mankind must choose one of three possible decisions about Christ;

            1. He is who He states He is... The Son of God, come to earth to save mankind.

            2. He was a liar

            3. He was deluded and or mentally insane

            Each individuals choice....choose wisely and read the new covenant and old covenant in comparison with your holy book, you will see that the author is not the same person in the Quran


            He also said...

            John 5:41-44

            "I do not accept praise from men, but I know you.

            I know that you do not have the love of God in your hearts.

            I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him.

            How can you believe if you accept praise from one another, yet make no effort to obtain the praise that comes from the only God?

            or how about these words...Christ spoke;

            John 6:39-41

            And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all that he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.

            For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."

            At this the Jews began to grumble about him because he said, "I am the bread that came down from heaven."

            and of course...

            John 10:29-31

            "My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.

            I and the Father are one." (Now THAT is one BIG statement)

            Hi, friends Ashmi and Paarsurrey!  Are you writing about Jesus' claims that he and the Father are one, that before Abraham existed I AM, I am the bread of life, I am the light of the world, I am the good shepherd, and I am the resurrection and the life?  Each of those claims in the Gospel of John was a claim that he is God, because his reference was clearly to God's appearance to Moses in the burning bush that didn't burn up in Exodus 3 and 4.  When Moses, also your prophet, asked God what his name was he said, I AM THAT I AM.  Jesus backed up his claims that he was God in the Gospel of John by feeding 5,000 people from a little food, healing a man born blind, identifying directly with the good shepherd (Yahweh) of Psalm 23, raising Lazarus from the dead, dying in believers' place to rescue them (John witnessed his death and the soldier's stabbing Jesus to make sure that he was dead), and rising from the dead (appearing to more than 500 people on many occasions), 

            You can believe what you want to, but I believe the eyewitnesses of Jesus' claims and actions showing that he is God and man.

      The beauty of it all is that we are exactly like He is, it is Just a matter of you coming to that knowledge.

      cuz he used to eat like us, he used to do work n talk like us.
      n jesus himself never said tht he's the son of God there's some changes in bible made by people who had added this..

      if he were God or son of God than y he did samethings like men do n i think if the son of God is borned frm virgin marry than y he lives like man? he should  have some more powers..

      Question:"Can Jesus Christ be called as a Godman ?"

      Answer:

      Jesus was not god or son of god; yes, he was a man of God. Men of God Allah YHWH are the Messengers and Prophets. They are pious people selected by the Creator- God Allah YHWH to impart guidance to the people and to set them right on the truthful path. Jesus was undobtedly a great Messenger Prophet.

      To me it's simple

      We are created in God's image in that we are mind, body and spirit.
      The three represent and comprise who we are as an an individual being.
      God the father
      God the son
      God the Holy spirit
      the three represent and comprise who God is as an individual being.
      God the father is the God head
      God the son (Jesus) is God in the flesh
      And God the Holy Spirit is the manifestation of God's spirit which He shares with His people.
