THE BODY OF CHRIST – By Elvin C. Myers

By Elvin C. Myers

Scripture Reading: Luke 1:30-35

When the truth is told it is often challenged: The truth  has never been popular. We read in Romans chapter 1 that  people who knew God, verse 21, changed the truth of God into  a lie. People believe lies so easily, and this makes the devil's  work so easy. Man's sinful nature leads him to do "that which  is right in his own eyes."

In our age of advanced knowledge and technology, lies are  all about us. Scientists lie. Politicians lie. The news media  lies; and worst of all, religion lies. At this time of the year, lies  abound. The plain facts of the Bible are challenged. They ask,  how can God be triune and one God? How can God be eternal  and have lived in time on earth? How could one part of God  come to earth and be born as a helpless baby, and then grow  to manhood? How could Mary conceive a child without a  human father and do so by God's Spirit?

The body of the Lord Jesus Christ was made by God the  Father. Neither Mary nor Joseph made any biological  contribution; they did not pass on to Jesus one single atom or  molecule. Adam was earthly, made from the dust of the  ground: The body of the Lord Jesus Christ did not come from  the dust of the ground. Hebrews 10:5 says His body was  prepared for Him. "Body" is in the neuter gender not  masculine. This agrees with verse 35 in our text which refers  to His body as "that holy thing." Holy thing is one word in  Greek. Matthew 1:20 says "that which is conceived," rather  than He which is conceived. "That" is neuter gender. His  dead body never corrupted in the grave (Acts 2:31-37). He  was holy and separate from sinners.
