Jesus must be the perfect unity of God and man for Christianity to be possible. He had all of the frailty of human life combined with the approval and blessing of God as his Son.
Like each of us, He had a physical body that was born from His mother and grew with age. This body grew tired, hungry, and thirsty, and He was able to die. Also, like all humans, He felt all the emotions.
At the same time, He was the only religious leader to make, and provide evidence for, the radical claim that He is indeed God. In John 1:1, Scripture says that Jesus (the word) was with God in the beginning, and He is perfect and eternal. Colossians 2:9 states clearly that the fullness of God is in bodily form in Jesus. Finally, unlike prophets and angels who rejected worship, Jesus accepted worship as an equal to God the Father.
In short, He is all He claimed to be: Son of God, Messiah, man, teacher, and deliverer.u0022Jesus is is either Lord, Liar or Lunatic. But He can't just call Him a good teacheru0022 CS Lewis Click To Tweet
