From its earliest roots, Christians have claimed that in Jesus we are given the fullness of God and genuine humanity all at once.  And while that certainly says something important about the nature of Jesus, it also says something pretty powerful about the nature of God: that God is capable of being expressed through the fragility, vulnerability, and earthiness of humanity.  And it says something, too, about God that God chooses to identify with the nobodies of the imperial backwater in the experience of a homeless rabbi who had been a child refugee, rather than to be born in the house of the royal family or in a position of utter privilege.  In this latest episode of our series, "Christianity 101," pastors Erica, Sarah, and Steve take a look at who Jesus is, how theologians have talked about Jesus throughout history, and what different this Jesus makes for each of us.  Join the conversation!
