The Incarnation – God’s taking upon Himself our humanity and becoming a man – is an amazing truth – and one that gives us a solid foundation for our faith.
Both Jesus and the very first Christians clearly asserted that He was fully divine, and over the centuries this truth has remained central to the Christian faith. Long before Jesus’ miraculous birth, the Old Testament foretold that God would enter this world in human form: “‘The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel’ – which means, ‘God with us'” (Matthew 1:23).
[Jesus] is the image of the invisible God.
