Son of God, Son of Man
One of the greatest mysteries of our faith is that the man Jesus was also the Son of God. Fully divine, yet fully human, God's Son, born in a stable, reared by a carpenter and his wife—pretty amazing. Christians have been meditating on this for centuries in hymns, poems, and other writings. Test your knowledge of what the Bible reveals about the Son of God, who chose to call Himself Son of Man.
