page 99 "The Shack"
"Although, by nature He is fully God, Jesus is fully human and lives as such. While never losing the innate ability to fly, He chooses moment-by- moment to remain grounded. That is why His name is Immanuel, God with us or God with *you* to be more precise".
No margin notes next to this passage. Nosireee.
Only thing happening was the explosion in my head, as I fought to contain, understand, *process* this thought.
Still working on it, as a matter of fact.
Is this new theology for me? No. I know the Trinity. I know the names of Jesus. I know God-with-us is Jesus, is Immanuel.
Is Jesus' humanity and divinity explained in a new way, a way that I can sort of get my head around? Yes.
The really crystal clear explanation of this mystery comes a bit later in the book. We'll discuss that tomorrow.
