True God and True Man

"All things have been handed over to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal Him."
MATTHEW 11:27

True God and True Man
He who says "all things" leaves nothing as an exception. Therefore, He is the true God. What is in Psalm 8:6 agrees with this: "You have put all things under His feet." On the other hand, the fact that He says "have been handed over" means that He truly is a man, since He has received from the Father. For neither would God hand over all things to one who was merely a human being nor would one who was merely God receive anything from anyone, for neither can a mere human being be above all things nor can one who is merely God be below God. Therefore, in this one person true God and man come together.
