Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth was both fully God and fully man. So although he was God, he experienced the same joys, temptations, heartaches and physical pain as other humans. The apostle John cautioned believers to ‘test the spirits’: only those who acknowledged that ‘Jesus Christ has come in the flesh [in a human body]’ were truly from God (1 John 4:1-3).
