A response to

Because he was 'from above'?

Al-Kadhi tries to show that Jesus is not exclusively from above, by quoting:


So again, we point out first that yes, indeed, those who belong to God aren't of the world, but are raised with Christ, "Seated at the right hand of God."

Second we remember that in fact Jesus came from above, while we who know Him were raised to heaven. He condescended to walk among us, then after we killed Him, we who repented of sin and looked to the cross were carried up with Him to heaven. He was there from all eternity but we were born in sin, and have not known God, except that He revealed Himself to us in Jesus. Thus is fulfilled the saying, "The first shall be last and the last first."
