Jesus, Fully Human, Fully God.

JESUS IS HUMAN. JESUS IS GOD. (edited for theological accuracy!) It was important for me to learn that Jesus was fully human in every way, even though he is also the Son of God.   Jesus hungered. He grew weary after a long dusty walk or a difficult day.  He prayed, yes he talked to…
