Question: Dear Brother in Christ Jesus, Compliments for your site. A lot of edifying material. I like to know your position on the topic of the body or flesh of Jesus Christ. Where do you believe it originates from? Is the flesh of Jesus from the dust, just like that of Adam, or is it from heaven, from above? Secondly, what, according to you, do the angels worship in Heb 1:6? Since the Son is Spirit manifested in flesh, do they worship the flesh and the Spirit here or just the Spirit? Thank you for your answer. Br. Johannes from the Netherlands

Answer: Hebrews 2:14 says, 'Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same.' The flesh and blood of Jesus Christ was like our flesh and blood. Like us, He was fearfully and wonderfully made in His mother's womb. The only difference was that the seed that resulted in conception came directly from the Holy Spirit.

The angels worship God, even when God is in the flesh. Like Thomas, they bow before the Man and declared, 'My Lord and my God.' When God is in the flesh, there is no distinction to be made between Spirit and flesh. The flesh is the humanity of God. Keep in mind that the term 'flesh' refers to more than just the physical components of man. It refers to everything that makes us human. Jesus was different from us in that in Him dwelled all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. We must not divorce the bodily aspect from the Godhead. That is the whole point of the Incarnation.
