Jesus was born divine. Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and the panel study how Jesus was born fully divine and fully human. The heresy of the adoptionism doctrine teaches that Jesus was adopted by God and then became divine, and that men can also become divine like Christ did. Brother Swaggart corrects this idea. Jesus is God and was sent by God, and is the second part of the trinity. Many liberal theologians will question the deity of Christ. Brother Swaggart says Jesus has always been the Son of God, and at the incarnation, He became the Son of Man. He came as a man to redeem sinful man; He laid aside His deity to be the perfect sinless sacrifice, but He never lost possession of it.
