Christians believe that Jesus is both fully human and yet fully divine. He claimed to be God on many occasions ('God the Son'... before Abaham was - I AM.....My Father and I a…re one .... I am in the Father and the Father is in me....), and his miracles culminating in the mighty resurrection testified to this fact. But he was also fully human; he got tired, he had emotions (he wept when Lazarus died, he was angry and turned over the moneychangers' tables in the Temple) and he ate and drank as would any human..
Some pseudoChristian sects claim that jesus was 'Spirit' and nothing more; some claim that he was just a human ut a good teacher - nothing more. But the Bible clearly reveals that Jesus was both man and God, and mainstream Christian denominations attest to this fact. (MORE)
Jesus was Both human and divine Christians believe that Jesus was fully human - with human needs and emotions (in the Bible we are told that he ate, drank, wept, got angry, bl…ed, and so on). If God had not become fully human then salvation would not be possible according to Christian doctrine. Also, Christians believe that Jesus was fully divine - and not somehoow subservient to a 'higher' God. Christians believe that Jesus was the third person in a Trinitarian God - the Father, the Holy Spirit - and the Son, Jesus, all as one God, yet three persons. Although each individual in the Trinity has its own function (ie The Father alone knows when the end of the world will come, Jesus alone is the means to Salvation and will be the Judge of all, the Holy Spirit alone is the means for God to reveal himself to us), Christians believe that Jesus is fully God. Some sects believe that Jesus is not divine in the same way as the majority of Christians (eg Jehovah's Witnesses) but Jesus himself claimed to divine in many references in the gospels, as well as claiming to be fully human. He claimed it of Himself, and proved it by His works on earth, and proves it by the way He works in people's lives today. Taste and see, repent and trust in Him and you'll understand the why and the how in a much clearer way. (MORE)

The common interpretation of theological discourses are read not being read as if in the 1st century life and geography of that time. The Roman government had been an Republic… but became autocratic. The other great powers and world economic facts placed Rome, conditions placed Rome the Empire , or by its consequences of being Rome place Rome into a limited military/unlimited military expenses. The political intrigues of the day and the religions made the desired appearance of a Messiah or Saviour or Teacher or Leader or King and Priest and Judge because the people were under great hardship physically and economically and spiritually vulnerable and the government was harsh and life was harsh for the poor who had the pagan or nonpagan temple priest to administer the treating and curing of the people. The scene was that Jesus knowlege of the working of man made many call him a god but he urged them not to but to worship and believe and that believeing was what made them well. He formed his own economy which made him undesirable to the bankers. He was growing in popularity and eveyone that listened began pooling their little and found themselves with an excess. He taught to fish and make their own tents and to take their excess to the market. His miracles were performed through his being the One who perfectly understood all things and through his reputation others carried on his healing and teaching miracles from that God who is not seen, an Unknown God, whom he is Son and is recorded we who believe are sons of God, theologically and through the practice and realization of miracles was Jesus Divine and Human but he was accused of saying he was a god or son of god which he did not publicize. The temple bankers and unaccepting Jews charged him as having a devil, like mental illness today is called magical thinking and believers tortured and imprisoned, so was the 1st Christians until Constantine gained the Empire throug the aid of the Christains organization. To be a Christian was to be called a atheit and traitor before Constantine and perhaps subject to war crimes trials, in a sense, by a tribunal of judges, because a believer was Divine and performed and believed in miracles. Constantine and the some Bishops realized that being solid souls, granted the breath of a god, and to defend a Christian State began to codify the canonical laws in the Ecunemical Counsels. The Bishops that contradicted the majority were then made war on by the Roman Church and the Eastern Churches. The original meanings of Jesus of Nazareth became traditional but he meant in his message that all men come to peace that surpassed understanding which was better than knowledge and wisdom in which he became an innocent man thus Jesus, being flesh in itself attained Divinity and was born Divine and was reborn Divine because he died to his self or his self no longer entered into sin or debt or calling others into paying their debt or sin and counseled that we forgive others sins or debts and ourselves likewqise and that he forgave us our sin and debt and we forgive one another and are thus healed by anyone saying, your sins are forgiven, we accepting forgivness are healed and approach the Divine One. God is One Person. God has power which moves unseen by we in the world of solid souls which is our bodies descended from Adam, our breath returns to God. God is One Person in a Kingdom in Heaven of many other Persons and Peers. When God or a god moves his power from the nonviewable world into the solid world that is a miracle and sign that he is Hoy. Jesus of Nazareth became the firstborn of God because he found God because God visited him into the womb of Mary. He was like God and kin to God. This being so because being that the Jewish leaders called him a devil or Nazi or Iranian or Jinni type possessed person, he was born into the royal House of King David to reconcile all persons to the True God, both Jew and non-Jew in which the world was at conflict of not being able to access God, because of two Gods being in the bloodlines of man the Creator God and the God who interbred with man at which time making man like god, knowing to look for good and evil, but only afterward finding himself alienated from God and grafting his works to evil. That is the true puzzle, which God is which from who's viewpoint but that Jesus of Nazareth became and was created, it is recorded as Divine and approachable to offspring of all because considered a god by some and a devil by his opposers and competitors in the economy and healing trades who falesly accused him before the government. The Christian faith became codified but was originally an Eastern religion. Robert Sherman Nix III. (MORE)

I think there may be a combination of ideas here... There's an old English idiom 'To err is human, to FORGIVE divine' by Alexander Pope ( "An Essay on Criticism" ). T…he Bible , in the Old Testament, tells us that God is full of love(Exodus 34:6), delighting in loving kindness(Micah 7:18) and it was a requirement that the Israelites LOVE God and teach this love to their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-9)(Deuteronomy 11:1). Later, in the Christian Greek scriptures, it says 'God is love'(1 John 4:8)and we need to follow his example if we are to be approved by him.(1 John 4:10-21) (MORE)
