Skeptic asked: “If Jesus is not a Created Being, how can He be called the Son of God? (John 5:26) says the Father granted the Son to have Life.”
Jesus was ordained to have “life” in flesh before the foundation of the World as the Gospel, the New Covenant, has been the Father’s battle strategy by which He would destroy the works of the Devil through the Son’s selfless love at Golgotha (2 Timothy 1:8-10; 1 John 3:8b).
Jesus took on “life” as we know it in flesh in order to offer Himself as the Spotless Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the World (Philippians 2; John 1:29) via fulfillment of the blood atoning mandates first pictured in Genesis 3:21 and articulated under Law in Leviticus 17:11.
Jesus is God, Jesus is Spirit, having manifest in flesh so that YOU might have a path to life in the Kingdom through reconciliation with the Father by grace through faith in Jesus as your Messiah via the forgiveness of sin (John 3). The Father ordained the “life” of Jesus the “person” and the Holy Spirit initiated that life through the womb of a virgin woman (Genesis 3:15) for the purposes of circumventing the sin-nature passed through the genome of Adam (Romans 5:12). No ordinary “man” born of Adam could accomplish this task, only Jesus, the God-MAN walked before us and the Father absent sin and gave Himself for you that you might find life in His Name (John 1; Hebrews 1; Colossians 1; 2 Corinthians 5:21).
“18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life you inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or spot. 20 He was known before the foundation of the world, but was revealed in the last times for your sake.…” 1 Peter 1
