What is Holiness, Uncleanness? – Brad Jersak

Luke 7:11-17 (NRSV) Jesus Raises the Widow’s Son at Nain 11 Soon afterwards he went to a town called Nain, and his disciples and a large crowd went with him. 12 As he approached the gate of the town, a man who had died was being carried out. He was his mother’s only son, and she was a widow; and with her was a large crowd from the town. 13 When the Lord saw her, he had compassion for her and said to her, “Do not weep.” 14 Then he came forward and touched the bier, and the bearers stood still.

He is One of Us, With Us! He Was and Is and Is To Come!

By Greg Albrecht As we continue to endure the dark days of 2020, we are lifted by the absolute, irrevocable truth of Isaiah: The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned – Isaiah 9:2 Here are some quotes about the incarnation, the coming of God to us, as one of us, that always amaze me and give me pause.  May these thoughts lift and encourage you, with hope and faith, as together we once again focus on the staggering reality of the God-man, theanthropos, the foundational truth proposition that God has come to be one of us, and still is!

What ‘Christ Died For Us’ Meant to the Fathers – Brad Jersak

The following summary represents what we find in the classics of early Christian thought as they recalled the 'faith once delivered,' and sought to articulate the meaning of the Incarnation in light of the revelation that Christ was both fully human and fully divine.  For primary readings on this, see for example: Athanasius, On the Incarnation Gregory of Nazianzus, Letters in Critique of Apollonarius Cyril of Alexandria, On the Unity of Christ When the apostles say Christ suffered and died for us, once for all (Rom 6:10; Heb 9:28; 1 Pet 3:18), for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 13:28; Col 2:13) and not ours only, everybody's (1 ...

“Breakfast with Brad” – Incarnation means God became human

In this episode of Breakfast with Brad," we are reminded that Incarnation (literally 'enfleshment') means that God became human. Why? To heal humanity and to reveal God's love in Jesus.
