Through incarnation, Christ as the eternal Word entered into the realm of time and space and put on blood and flesh. His flesh, however, unlike ours, was not the sinful flesh. Rather, He came only in the likeness of the flesh of sin (Rom 8:3). He was a perfect man, absolutely without sin (Heb. 4:15; 2 Cor. 5:21). By becoming the Son of Man (Matt. 12:8, 40; Mark 8:31; Luke 19:10), Christ became intimately involved with humanity and thus gained a physical body necessary for His redemptive death. It is truly a miracle that God became a man! (Ron Kangas, A & C, 12)

Since Christ is both the complete God and the perfect man, possessing both the divine and human natures, He can be called the “God-man.” He was conceived of the Holy Spirit in the womb of a human virgin (Luke 1:35; Matt. 1:20). In Him the divine and human natures were joined together, yet without either creating a third entity or forfeiting the distinctiveness of both natures. (Witness Lee, Conclusion, 282-284)
