How Could Jesus be God if He was Seen by Man?
First, it ignores the fact that man only saw Jesus (?the Word??John 1:1) after ?the Word became flesh and dwelt among us? (John 1:14). He came in a veiled form. No human has ever seen Jesus in His true image (i.e., as a spirit Being?John 4:24?in all His glory and splendor). In his letter to the church at Philippi, the apostle Paul mentioned that Christ?Who had existed in heaven ?in the form of God???made Himself of no reputation,? and took on the ?likeness of men? (Philippians 2:6-7). Men saw an embodiment of God as Jesus dwelt here in a fleshly form. Men saw ?the Word? that ?became flesh.? But no one has ever seen God?s true, complete image (as a spirit Being).
