Study Guide #12—God Incarnate


By Kay Smith and Ruth Wood

We worship a holy God who created the world and sustains it with wise and sovereign control, who needs nothing, but who graciously commits Himself to love people. It was not enough for Him to speak to His chosen people and to regulate their lives for their own good; the eternal God did the unthinkable—He become one of them.

1. Read John 1:1-18. List what God tells us about the Word in verses 1-5. What does each bit of information mean?

2. Rephrase John 1:14 in less poetic, more specific language. Who is “the Word”?

3. In John 1:1-18 when the Word became flesh, what did that do for people?

4. Read Hebrews 1:1-5. What godly qualities or characteristics does Jesus have? What position does He hold?

5. Read Hebrews 2:9-18. Why did God become man? (See especially verses 14-18.)

6. What difference should it make to you that God became a man?

John 1:9-13

Hebrews 2:1-3

Hebrews 2:15

Hebrews 4:14-16

7. Write a brief description of what each of the following verses say about Jesus and the incarnation:

John 1:1-5; 14-18

John 8:56-59

John 10:30

John 17:21-26

Philippians 2:5-11

Colossians 1:15-22

Hebrews 1

Hebrews 2:9-18

8. Some final questions on which to reflect. Is Jesus God? How completely? Why did God become flesh? (See Hebrews 2:8-18.) What does this tell us about God? How should we respond?
