David Rudolph has this to say:
There is a tendency is today's church for Gentile Christians to think of the Son of God as having left behind his humanity. Typically, Gentiles Christians do not have difficulty worshiping Jesus, but many experience difficulty thinking of Jesus as fully human, having national/ethnic identity and and returning in bodily form to establish his kingdom on earth. (Introdction, page 16)
Whether we are Jew or Gentile, this can be an issue for all of us! Do you struggle to embrace the human part of the Messiah? Do we shy away from envisioning Yeshua returning as a human? Or does this bring Him closer to us?
