Implications of the Incarnation

Please be prepared to discuss atleast one of these topics.

  1. The Book of Matthew (ch.1)  has the genealogy of Jesus through Joseph. If Jesus was born of a virgin (so Joseph wasn't technically his father) why does this matter? When else in Scripture does an "adopted" child receive rights?
  2. Does Jesus have normal responsibilities in Heaven (if so, what?)? Who was taking care of these things while Jesus was on earth as a man?
  3. Philippians 2:7 says that Jesus emptied Himself to become a man. Of what did He empty Himself? How was Jesus limited as a man?
