don robert: Can we say Jesus was the “perfect being” Mang Epi, being He is a Man-God?

EMA:  Yes don, we can say that Jesus was the “perfect being” for man to emulate in ways and attitude especially when facing afflictions and sufferings one encounters in living the Christian life. Jesus was made perfect through the sufferings he experienced as the captain of man’s salvation.

Hebrews 2:10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

don robert:  So as not to stray from your other thread, I will reply here, Mang Epi. This is so as this seem more related to this thread. With JC as the “perfect being”, how would that equate to your interpretation that “we” are still in the “creation process”. Are we in the “creation process” like JC?

And from the posts and your discussion with/of Mang Adme, you mentioned about the “word” becoming “flesh” in JC. When JC “died”, did he not resurrect in “body and spirit”? For there was no body found in the tomb where he was laid. If JC resurrected indeed in “body and spirit”, how would that equate on Him being “lower than the angels”?

That equates to the spiritual creation phase when one receives the Holy Spirit of God. A person so indwelt by God’s Holy Spirit is to develop Jesus’ character, Jesus’ mind.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus…

Jesus became perfect through sufferings as a human which he has not experienced prior to his former state of being God.

Jesus showed by example how Christians should live God’s way by always upholding God’s will in every situation.

The dead Jesus was revived in which process he was changed to spirit.

1 Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam (Jesus Christ) became a life-giving spirit.

Jesus having been resurrected and changed to spirit, why should you still be looking for his body?

As a spirit, Jesus could manifest himself as flesh for man to be able to see him since a spirit is beyond man’s capability to see.

Jesus was lower than the angels only when he was in the flesh, when he was made mortal. When Jesus was resurrected, he was restored to his former state of being higher than angels.
