An Only Begotten Son


Joseph and Mary
your son Isaiah 9: 6-7
is only first born Matthew 1: 16

without original sin
human stain
of Adam and Eve Genesis 3: 1-18


only child
born without
original sin Matthew 20: 28

an immaculate Matthew 1: 18
conception Matthew 1: 23
awaited virgin birth Matthew 1: 25


third perfect
human being
second Adam Hebrews 7: 28

only perfect soul
tempted by sin
that did not fall Mark 1: 13


God incarnate
in flesh
our long promised John 1: 14

Messiah born John 1: 41-42
into the world
in Bethlehem Matthew 2: 1

Adam made by
God’s own hands
shaped in red clay

God breathed breath
of life into Adam
spark of life living soul Genesis 2: 7


Eve rib taken
from Adam in sleep
flesh of his flesh

soul of his soul
God created first man
God created first woman Genesis 2: 20-23


in the beginning
was the Word
the Word was with God John 1: 1

the Word was a God
all things came into
existence through him


apart from him
not even one thing
came into existence John 1: 1-3

Lord Jesus Christ John 20; 28
Our Lord and Saviour Acts 13: 23
The Blood of the Lamb John 1: 29


For God
loved the world
so much

that he sent
his only
begotten son John 3: 16

as a ransom
sacrifice for our sin 1Timothy 2: 6
to save the world John 3: 17

so that all people
exercising faith in him
would not be judged John 3: 18

but be saved
given eternal life
for there is one God

and one mediator
between God and men
a man Christ Jesus 1Timothy 2: 5

who said
I am the way
the truth

and the life
and no one
comes to God

except through me John 14: 6

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
