“Jesus himself says that he will be with us (Matt 28:20), even though he said that he was leaving so that the Spirit would come (John 15:7). So while Jesus is in heaven in his human body, he is omnipresent through the Holy Spirit.”
(Clint Archer – The Cripplegate) Jordan Peterson asks this provocative question: what does an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent Being lack? The answer is… limitations.
Someone recently asked me if Jesus is limited for all eternity by the human nature he took on. This led to a discussion of where Jesus is now and what he is doing – which I hope will answer the question about the limitations of Christ’s human nature. So here goes in 500 words…
At the time of his incarnation Jesus took on a human nature – a second nature – in addition to (not instead of) his divine nature. This second nature is a permanent addition, so Jesus will now always be both fully God and fully man. Jesus is described in 1 Timothy 2:5 as currently “The man Christ Jesus.” Thus, from the time of his conception, and for eternity to come, Jesus is no longer just spirit, but has a human body. Now his is a glorious body – as ours will be after our resurrection – but it is a body. (Philippians 3:21).
