Jesus Enters History
Jesus is the one and only Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father
and the Holy Spirit and has existed with them throughout all eternity.

- John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and
we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth. (KJV)
He lived the perfect life and was the perfect evidence that God's Word
With no human father, Jesus had not inherited the nature to sin, but
nevertheless had the constant choice of whether or not to obey the Father.
With no personal sin, he chose to take on the sins of the world and suffer
the punishment for all mankind.
