The Trinity: God the Son


Picking up from the previous weekend on “God the Father,” I continued our vision series with an exploration of the second person of the Trinity, God the Son.

How do you pack into one message the entirety of Scriptural teaching on God the Son, plus give attention to some of the most important debates and discussions of Christology since the time of Christ? It’s impossible. However, I did my best to bring together a lot of material from Scripture and historical theology in this message.

Here is the video and sermon outline of the second message from our series on The Trinity, “God the Son.”

You can follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.


God the Son and Time

The preexistent Son (John 1:1-3; Genesis 1:1-3)

The incarnate Son (John 1:14; Philippians 2:5-11)

The glorified Son (Luke 24:50-52; Revelation 1:13-16)

Summary (1 Timothy 3:16)


Old Testament Witnesses: Promises Fulfilled 

Promises to Abraham (Genesis 12:1-3)

Promises to Moses (Exodus 19:3-6; Deuteronomy 18:18)

Promises to David (2 Samuel 7:10-13)

Promises to Isaiah (Isaiah 42:1-9; 53:1-12)

Promises to Daniel (Daniel 7:13-14)


The Incarnation of the Son of God: Jesus’ Earthly Ministry

Jesus the Prophet (Deuteronomy 18:18; Matthew 7: 28-29; Luke 9:35)

Jesus the Priest (Hebrews 7:23-25; 8:1-2; 9:11-14; 1 John 2:1)

Jesus the King (Luke 1:31-33; John 18:36; Revelation 19:16)


What This Does Not Mean

Not that Jesus appears divine but is really only human (Adoptionism)

Not that Jesus appears human but is really only divine (Docetism)

Not that Jesus is a created special being less than God (Arianism)
