Shownotes

Summary:

To understand the humanity of Jesus Christ is to know His example which allows us to become just like Him. Since He is the pattern Son, then that means there will be others after that pattern.

Show notes:

• We must come to know the humanity of Jesus Christ.

• He was the pattern Son so that we could be just like Him.

• He had to live through all of what we experience as humans or it would have been useless for Him to die on the cross.
