God, the Creator of the universe, in order to rescue man from punishment for his rebellion, came to earth and took on humanity in Jesus, the Savior, to die on a cross and rise from the dead, so that in the final resurrection those who receive his mercy will enjoy a wonderful friendship with their sovereign Lord in the kind of perfect world their hearts have always yearned for.

The incarnation makes God tangible. It helps us think about God. It is quite astonishing how the question, ‘Is Christ divine?’ is discussed as if we had an excellent idea about what God was like, while Christ himself remained something of an enigma. But exactly the opposite is so obviously the case! Christ confronts us through the gospel narratives and through experience, whereas we have no clear vision of God. As John’s gospel reminds us: ‘No one has ever seen God; the only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, has made him known’ (John 1:18). God is Christlike—in other words, we learn to think of God as we see him in Christ. For the Christian, it is Christ who provides us with the basis of the most reliable knowledge of God available.

We are thus in a position to take the crucial step which underlies all Christian thinking on the incarnation—that, as Jesus acts as God and for God in every context of importance, we should conclude that, for all intents and purposes, Jesus is God.

When all things began, the Word already was. The Word dwelt with God, and what God was, the Word was. So the Word became flesh; he came to dwell among us, and we saw his glory, such glory as befits the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.
— John 1:1, 14, The Holy Bible, Revised English Bible
Jesus’ divine nature is omnipotent, omniscient, and in every way infinite and eternal in the fullness of perfection. Furthermore, Jesus’ divine nature is the identically same divine nature as the divine nature of the Spirit and of the Father.
