Jesus

“Let us, then, meditate upon the Nativity just as we see it happening in our own babies. I would not have you contemplate the deity of Christ, the majesty of Christ, but rather his flesh. Look upon the baby Jesus. Divinity may terrify man. Inexpressible majesty will crush him. That is why Christ took on our humanity, save for sin, that he should not terrify us but rather that with love and favor he should console and confirm” (Martin Luther, Christmas Book, p. 33).

    Christ showed his majesty and divinity most completely in these words, “Into your hands I commit my Spirit.”

    To quote my favorite Sith lord, “There is no conflict.”

    To see Christ’s fleshliness is nothing less than to see His divinity and majesty.
