The Incarnation Revealed

FRIDAY

God revealed to man that he should expect a God-Man savior, where this Savior would enter the world, how He would enter and when He would enter the world. All that remained was for Him to enter the world. Paul tells us in Galatians 4:4 that in the fullness of the time, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law. This momentous event took place about 2,000 years ago in the birth of Jesus the Christ.


NAU Luke 2:7
And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


NIV Luke 2:7 and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


KJV Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.


When this took place, the miracle of the Incarnation was on display and continues to be on display before the entire world.

NAU John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…. 14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth

NIV John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…. 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, {14 Or the Only Begotten} who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

KJV John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…. 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


The angels summarized this event best when they made the birth announcement to the shepherds:


NAU Luke 2:11
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

NIV Luke 2:11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ {11 Or Messiah. “The Christ” (Greek) and “the Messiah” (Hebrew) both mean “the Anointed One“; also in verse 26.} the Lord.

KJV Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.


Praise to Jesus, our God, The Anointed One, the promised savior of Genesis 3:15!
