Nov 28, 2022: Jesus Got it Right

Robert E. Webber

The primary biblical example of participation in God is Jesus himself. Jesus, the incarnate Word, is the only man who “got it right.” In Jesus God shows us what humanity should look like, for he reversed the disobedience of the first Adam, who rebelled against God’s purposes for life, and gave us in his life the true image of a restored humanity. Jesus’s life was a perfect participation in God.
