Part II
“ The Pre-Fleshly State of Jesus”

“Eternally the Same”—It’s recorded in Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today, yes and forever.” No matter the condition of His physical substance, the fact that His nature is always the same is a Bible truth!

“No Beginning”—We are told about His pre-existent state in Hebrews 7:3 which states: “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days not end of life, but made like the Son of God, he abides a priest perpetually.”

“Eternal Activities”—It is recorded in Micah 5:2 concerning Christ, “From you, one will go forth for me to be ruler in Israel. His goings forth are from long ago, from the days of eternity.”

“Existed before the creation of the World”—John records in John 1:1, “In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was God.” (“Word”, in the Greek, is “Logos” in this verse. Vine describes it to mean “the expression of thought; not the mere idea of an object, but as an embodying a conception or idea.”

He also states “the absence of the article in each place lends stress to the nature and character of the relationship; His was the Shekinah glory in open manifestation.” {Vine’s New Testament Words, p. 231.}) John later recorded in John 17:5, Jesus praying to the Father: “And now, glorify thou me with Thyself, Father, with the Glory which I had with thee before the world was.”

“”Existed before Abraham”—When Jesus revealed to the Jews He was teaching in the eighth chapter of John’s Gospel, that Abraham had rejoiced to see the day of Jesus, they could not understand how He had seen Abraham. Jesus answered in John 8:58; “Truly, Truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.”

“Genealogy of Jesus Christ”—His complete genealogy through the Jewish bloodline of David, and right to God is recorded in Luke 3:23-38. His genealogy through His mother, Mary’s side is recorded in Matthew 1:1-17, showing His earthly bloodline.
