097 Spiritual Life of Jesus, Part 1

In Episode 97, we talk about the first part of a mini-series where we recall Jesus' earthly existence. Excluding the act of sin, Jesus is identical to us in every way –human body, heart, intellect, and volition. He matured and grew. He felt hunger, thirst, weariness, and the complete spectrum of human emotions. As a human being, he also serves as a paradigm for real human obedience.

How exactly did Jesus live out his spiritual life? Did he always have God's word and the Holy Spirit bestowed upon him from birth? It's important that we acknowledge this in theology as not only does it gives us a correct understanding of Christ, it also gives us a correct understanding of our own lives as Christians and what it means to walk with him.

Tune in now and let's go bigger, better, and deeper!
