Yet we know that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, He accepted worship, which is supposed to be for God alone, He forgave sins which is something only God can do. Jesus even goes further in John when He states that He existed before Abraham was born and refers too Himself as the I am. The people He was speaking to were so upset by His statement that they wanted too kill Him.
(Joh 8:58 ASV) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was born, I am.
Verily: Joh_8:34, Joh_8:51
I am: That our Lord by this expression asserted his divinity and eternal existence, as the great I AM, appears evident from the use of the present tense, instead of the past tense, from its being in answer to the Jews, who enquired whether he had seen Abraham, and from its being thus understood by the multitude, who were exasperated at it to such a degree that they took up stones to stone him. The ancient Jews not only believed that the Messiah was superior to and Lord of all the patriarchs, and even of angels, but that his celestial nature existed with God from whom it emanated, before the creation, and that the creation was effected by his ministry. Exo_3:14; Isa_43:13, Isa_44:6, Isa_44:8, Isa_46:9, Isa_48:12; Rev_1:8
Even though Jesus Christ was God manifested in the flesh, He was not born as God but as a human being. Even though Jesus always existed and is God, prior to His birth He did not have a physical flesh and blood body. Jesus Christ was not Born as God but as a man.
So that leaves us with the question why would God manifest Himself in the flesh?
The answer is that God found it necessary become a man so that He could do what no man could do and that is too bring salvation and forgiveness of sins, too undo what was done in the Garden of Eden and give us new life in Jesus Christ, to be born again.
It was through a man Adam that sin and death entered into the world, because of his disobedience;
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. (1 Corinthians 15:21 ESV)
For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive? (1 Corinthians 15:22 ESV)
born of a mother and father since we are all descended from Adam and Eve we have inherited there fallen spiritual condition.
For as through the one man's disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the one shall the many be made righteous. (Romans 5:19 ASV)
And it had to be through a man to bring redemption, but not just any man it had to be a man without sin or our sinful nature, which excludes every human being on the planet,
