At the begining of the book of John we learn that the “Word” is someone, not something.
1 In the beginning was the Word: the Word was with God and the Word was God.
2 He was with God in the beginning.
3 Through him all things came into being, not one thing came into being except through him.
4 What has come into being in him was life, life that was the light of men;
5 and light shines in darkness, and darkness could not overpower it.
And if you look at the begining of the book of Genesis you’ll notice God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
1 In the beginning God created heaven, and earth.
God the Father
2 And the earth was void and empty, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the **spirit of God **moved over the waters.
God the Holy Spirit
3 And God said: Be light made. And light was made.
The Word of God, before He came in the flesh, Jesus
26 God said, “Let us make man in **our **own image, in the likeness of ourselves, and let them be masters of the fish of the sea, the birds of heaven, the cattle, all the wild animals and all the creatures that creep along the ground.”
The Holy Trinity
Back to the book of John
14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only **begotten of the Father,) **full of grace and truth.
15 John beareth witness of him, and crieth out, saying: This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me, is preferred before me: because he was before me.
16 And of his fullness we all have received, and grace for grace.
17 For the law was given by Moses; grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
18 No man hath seen God at any time: the only **begotten Son **who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Begotten =1. spawn, sire, breed, father, (esp. of a male parent) to procreate or generate (offspring).
Our children share our nature,they are human beings because we are.
Jesus shares His Fathers nature, He is God because His Father is God.
Jesus also shares His mothers nature,He is human because she is human.
All of us have one nature we are human.
Jesus has two natures He is both human and Divine. because of His parents.
And because Jesus is one with His Church His Church is both human and Divine.
We make up the body of His Church that is the human part. Jesus being one with His Church, and the Holy Spirit guiding it. That is the Divine part.
Through Scripture, Tradition and the Magisterium. This is how I know Jesus is both, at the same time, human and Divine.
