8. How did Christ show from the Scriptures that the promised Saviour of the world must be both human and divine?

Answer

"While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying, What think ye of Christ? Whose
son is He? They say unto Him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call
Him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit Thou on My right hand, till I make Thine enemies Thy
footstool? If David then call Him Lord, how is He his son?" Matt. 22: 41-45.
NOTE -This important truth concerning the union of the human and divine in Christ, has been
well expressed in these words: "Divinity needed humanity that humanity might afford a channel of
communication between God and man. Man needs a power out of and above himself to restore him to the
likeness of God. There must be a power working from within, a new life from above, before men can be
changed from sin to holiness. That power is Christ."
