Thoughts on the incarnation…

Gleanings from Dr. McWilliam’s Christology class:

In the incarnation, God becomes who he had not been, without ceasing to be who He always had been.  God the Son becomes man yet while always being of the same substance (ὁμοούσιος) of the Father and the Spirit.

All of history stands in the shadow of this glorious reality:  God the Father sent His Son, Jesus, into the world in which we live.  He died, He stands risen, and He ascended into heaven.  This is the hope of the world.

Longing for this day:

And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!” Revelation 5:13

Τῷ καθημένῳ ἐπὶ τοῦ θρόνου καὶ τῷ ἀρνίῳ ἡ εὐλογία καὶ ἡ τιμὴ καὶ ἡ δόξακαὶ τὸ κράτος εἰς τοὺς αἰῶνας τῶν αἰώνων
