But no more than Hellenistic culture at the dawn of the second century. What Are Theologians Saying About Christology? They were waiting for the King; Jesus is the King. Indeed, here, in a special way, began His work, not only for the redemption of humanity but for ending the great controversy with Satan. "Acts 1:1, 2 makes it plain that it was through the power of the Holy Spirit that Jesus 'had given commandments unto the apostles.' Here, too, we have another clear reference to the dependence of Jesus upon the power of the Holy Spirit in His life. "The Pharisees asserted that Jesus cast out devils through the power of Beelzebub.

    But his stress is always that we see Christ as one incarnate Person, so that even though he suffers in His flesh, nevertheless it is God who suffers because it is the flesh of God. The use of 'flesh' rather than body makes is clear that the sensible presence of Jesus was real not illusion or fantasy. Burton calls it a "problem" that some New Testament texts "appear to deviate" from the Old Testament (which says that God is the Creator) and "attribute creation to the pre-existent Christ"!
