The Word Became Flesh

Essentially the same principle is illustrated in both the inspiration of the Scripture and the incarnation of the Son.  The Word became flesh.  The divine was communicated through the human.  He identified with us, though without surrendering His own identity.  And this principle of “identification without loss of identity” is the model for all evangelism, especially cross-cultural evangelism.
