In this two-part series, we explore the wonder of God in flesh — the incarnation. Most Christians understand that Jesus, The Son of God took on humanity, but few really understand what the incarnation is, why Jesus had to be human and how this reality makes such a difference in their lives.
- The Incarnation: The Greatest Thing That Ever Happened For You – Part 1
The incarnation — literally, God “in flesh” — is the greatest thing that ever happened for you. Jesus, The Son of God (fully God), was begotten the Son of Man (human) to accomplish incredible things for you. In the first of this two-part teaching, we explore:
- What is the incarnation? We explore the powerful meaning of this great reality.
- Why the incarnation? It’s one thing to know the “what” of the incarnation, but when we ask the important question “why”, we dig deep and uncover the incredible heart of God. Jesus had to be human, so that there would be a new race of humans, to unite with our humanity and be our perfect High Priest.

In this podcast, we take up the question, “So what does the incarnation have to do with me”? This question is answered by taking up the reasons for the incarnation that we discussed last time and then connecting the dots to understand the great many benefits Christ’s incarnation give us for the victorious life.
