“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. Far from merely the initiating Christmas event, the Incarnation speaks of God assuming human nature as can be seen throughout the whole course of the life of Christ. Featured breakfast: jam-filled Christmas cookies!   PTM.org's "Breakfast with Brad" - Incarnation means God became human! from Brad Jersak on Vimeo.

When the Incarnation Gets Personal – Michael Frack

The thing about Christmas and the Incarnation that every now and then breaks through my stoic emotional defenses and leaves me blubbering like a child, is that God, the Maker of Heaven and Earth, who sits on the Throne above every Throne, loves not just the human race in general, but loves me, cares enough for me, that he took on my flesh and my frame and came to be like me – that he came to know my suffering, and my darkness, and my pain – and that he came to be rejected as I am rejected. That he came into my mess to make his home in my despair, to live his life in the places where I can only see pain and death. That he came to take the ...

When Holy Mercy Touches the Dust of Death – 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. And he said, “Young man, I say to you, rise!” 15 The dead man sat up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. 16 Fear ...

How Far Would God Go? – Greg Albrecht

Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others. In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own ...

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 ...
