PreExistent Christ



Has Jesus always existed? We know he was born of the virgin Mary as recorded in Luke 1-2. But did Jesus Christ exist before Nazareth at the Incarnation of God's Son to the Virgin woman named Mary? Let's Look at this subject. We will cut to the meat. Jesus said he pre-existed. 

 "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I{Jesus} had with thee BEFORE the world was." - John 17:5 (KJV)

Let's look closer and examine the "what if's" IF JESUS HAS NOT ALWAYS EXISTED:

THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF ALL AGES: Matthew 22:42 cp John 8:24

3> If He isn't God, then He would be a liar- (John 8:58)
