That isn't the understatement of the year. It's not even the biggest understatement of the entire history of the universe since Creation ... It's the understatement of Eternity.
Have you any idea who and what Jesus IS.
Jesus told us exactly who and what He IS:
"Before Abraham was, I AM."
Jesus Christ is Lord. Jesus Christ is God. He isn't a human person at all, He is a Divine Person. He had and has ALL authority.
Without Him, were nothing at all.
Do I know what the Christ is?
He became human, but He also never gave up His diety completely, so I would hazard a guess that I have a better understanding of what the Christ is than you give me credit for. If He wasn’t a “human person” then He couldn’t qualify as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
He is fully God and fully Man at the same time.
