I don't believe that Jesus ever laughed. How could He, when he knew what lay before him? Furthermore, I don't think people of long ago laughed the way we do today. No, I believe in a solemn Jesus, one that was carrying the weight of all humanity on His shoulders. I think if he had laughed the Bible would have stated it.

Unitarian Subordinationism - Sometimes simply called "Subordinationism," it is thought that this view may have actually been the dominant view of the Eastern Fathers until the Arian controversy. (Including Origen, Eusebius and other famous thinkers). In this view, Jesus is seen as co-eternal and co-creator alongside the Father. One may even say He is ...

Approximately 97% of Christians belong to Trinitarian denominations, so it's a reasonable view that there are no other prominent Christologies at all. However let's ignore that argument, and consider the most prominent ones after excluding Trinitarianism. Most of them are associated with specific denominations. For example the Latter-Day Saints and the ...

The doctrine of the Trinity says that God is three persons in one being. One of those persons, the second person of the Trinity, took on flesh and became a human, the man Jesus. If I understand what you're suggesting, you would run into one of these two problems: Because the pre-baptism Jesus was a person, the hypostatic union would be two people, a ...

I'm sorry if I misunderstand your "scoping the question", but I'm responding from the Protestant tradition which I think has something significant to say on the matter. In Reformed theology, the implications for Jesus' hypostatic union beginning at his conception at the least encompass his life of obedience. Jesus actually was born and lived under the law ...

Historically, the position of the church on Christology has been explained as "hypostatic union, meaning that Jesus was fully God and fully man). In the late 300s, Nestorius taught that Jesus' natures were separate. The problem comes when you consider salvation. In any Satisfaction theory of atonement, the 'victim' that satisfies God's wrath must be a ...

To be human is to be an embodied soul. It is not enough for Him to just speak into creation. A true word must be face to face. to be a mediator between man and God. The second Adam succeeds in walking a perfect human life where the first one failed. He must be fully human in order to be the perfect human sacrifice. To be a model and example for us, ...

The United Pentecostal Church International, who are a denomination of Oneness Pentecostalism, and adopt the doctrine of Oneness, which is essentially the same as Modalistic Monarchianism, offer the following in support of their Doctrinal Foundation: The Oneness of God God is absolutely and indivisibly one (Deuteronomy 6:4; Galatians 3:20). In ...

None of the above, Mormon christology is Mormonism. Although this wikipedia article names The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a modern Christian group which may be seen as espousing some of the principles of Arianism. Latter-day Saints believe God the Eternal Father to be our literal father in Heaven, the father of the spirits of all ...

It is possible that Jesus is in this particular case was emphasizing what God said back in the Old Testament: Isaiah 41:4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the LORD, the first, and with the last; I am he. Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the ...

Let me start by saying that there is only one God: it is the Father (1 Corinthians 8:6). God is immortal, eternal, all powerful and all knowing. God begot a Son in such a remote past that finite human minds like mine cannot fathom. This Son is the Christ (anointed one). Since the Christ was born of the Father who is God, He also inherited all the ...

I can find a number of times in the New Testament (KJV) where the word "everlasting" is used, but they never refer to any person, not even the person of Jesus Christ, so without a citation (book, chapter, verse, translation), your question is based upon a false premise. As to the phrse "alpha and omega, the beginning and the end", this is as much a poetic ...
