We’ve now reached Part 2 of the catechism, where we start to think about who Jesus is and what he’s done – how it all works out. In this question, we think about what kind of Redeemer we need to bring us to God.
We think a little about how Jesus was both human and divine – fully human, and fully God. Of course this is a mystery for us, but yet this is how the Bible describes it – and also it is necessary for our salvation. We need a Saviour who is able to ‘bridge the gap’ between sinful human beings and a perfect creator.
