In a few words, describe the Incarnation of Jesus?
The incarnation of Jesus is the belief that Jesus, the Son of God, was made manifest in human form. This took place when the eternal Word of God became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:14). The incarnation is an essential doctrine of Christianity.
Incarnation of Jesus
Word of God: A term used to refer to divine revelation or instruction from God. Incarnation: The taking on of human form by a deity or other being. Flesh: The physical matter of which a living human body is composed.
Before Jesus was born, an angel told Mary and Joseph that Jesus would be called 'Emmanuel', which means 'God with us'. The feast of Incarnation is celebrated on 25th December in many Christian churches. Jesus' life was prophesied in the Old Testament hundreds of years before His birth.
