God’s Condescension

What strikes us immediately is the greatness of God’s condescension.  He had sublime truth to reveal about Himself and His Christ, His mercy and His justice, and His full salvation.  And He chose to make this disclosure through the vocabulary and grammar of human language, through human beings, human images, and human cultures.
