The Incarnation: What it Means and Why it Matters
During Advent, as we wait for Christmas, Christians around the world decorate with nativity scenes, sing cherished songs, and read stories to celebrate and remember the birth of Jesus. But who is baby Jesus? The Christmas season is full of nostalgia and tradition, but we should be careful not to gloss over what “Jesus, the Son of God in human flesh” means. In this Groundwork series, we’ll look at the Apostle Paul’s letters to see what Paul says about the incarnation and to better understand why the incarnation of the Son of God is a truth necessary to our beliefs about Jesus, salvation, and our place in God’s family.
