(SERMON) Incarnation, Apollonaris, and Nestorius: John 6.35-51

The doctrine of the incarnationGod in the fleshis utterly foundational to Christianity.  The belief that Jesus is 100% God and 100% human, that he is the God-man, is the truth upon which our hopes and salvaiton rest.

But what does all of this actually mean?

The Early Church was divided between the teachings of Alexandria and Antioch, between the errors of Apollonarianism and Nestorianism. It had to find the biblical middle ground and did so at the Council of Chalcedon in 451ADwhat was taught there, and is taught in the Bible, should impact our daily lives and even our theology of the Lord's Supper.
