Does the Son of God Not Grow Up?

The Bible’s doctrine of Christ is that Messiah (i.e. Christ) experiences sufferings, followed by glories (Luke 24:26; 1 Peter 1:10-12).  Of course, there is much more to the doctrine than that – but this represents the outline.  The last of the sufferings was His crucifixion and then death.  The first of the glories was to be raised from the dead.  The next was to be taken up into heaven and seated at the right hand of God.  His final glory was to be enthroned above a new heavens and new earth.

To experience all the glories, Jesus – the Son of God – would need to grow up.  That is, He would need to grow up as God just as He had grown up as a human being.  He began human life as a baby in the womb of a female descendant of David who was betrothed to a male descendant of David.  Jesus of Nazareth matured into a full-grown adult in His early thirties before He was killed.  He was born again as the Son of God on the day of His resurrection from the dead (Acts 13:33; Psalm 2:7; Romans 1:4). He grew up as the Son of God over the ensuing 30 years or so until the time came for His Second Coming at which time He was “fully grown” as God and thereupon took His rightful place as head of all things in the new creation (Ephesians 1:10; Colossians 1:18) – the event we so often refer to as the Second Coming.

The Trinity doctrine would stunt Jesus’ growth and keep Him from His destiny as God over all, while the Bible says that Jesus would come in the glory of His Father (Matthew 16:27), that all the glory of His Father’s house would be hung on Him (Isaiah 22:24), and that this Son of God would be called “Mighty God” as well as “Eternal Father” (Isaiah 9:6).

See how the trinity doctrine wants to stifle the growth of the Son of God?  Turn instead to the doctrine of Christ, which the Bible teaches, and serve the King of Kings: Jesus Christ our Lord.  He who has seen Him has seen the Father.

  1. I believe The Lord Jesus Christ is God, The Son of God, and The Messiah; as clearly taught in The Bible. The stakes are too high to be wrong about this.

  2. Mike Gantt says:

    It does us no good to be right about this if we don’t obey His commands (Luke 6:46-49).
