And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Two thousand years ago, the Infinite became finite; the Invisible became tangible; that which was far off drew near. “The word became flesh:” He became what He was not previously. He did not cease to be God, but He became Man. Our Divine Savior took upon Him human nature. His Deity was never laid aside; His humanity, though sinless, was a real humanity; As “the Word,” He is the Son of God; as “flesh,” the Son of man. This union of the two natures of Christ is one of the mysteries of our faith—”Without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh” (1 Tim. 3:16).
