In the past articles in this series on The Lord Jesus Christ we have taken a look at the Preexistence of the Lord Jesus, the activity of Christ in the OT and the meaning and predictions of Jesus’ birth.
In this post we are going to explain His birth and the incarnation of the Lord and the purpose of His birth. Let’s see what the Bible has to say about the the miraculous birth of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Explanation of the Incarnation
When talking about the incarnation John Walvoord states: “The incarnation of the Lord Jesus Christ is the central fact of Christianity. Upon it the whole superstructure of Christian theology depends. In one sense, the remaining discussion of Christology as a whole is an amplification of the incarnation.”
With that being said the incarnation is the foundation of Christianity and with out it our faith falls like a house of cards. We are going to examine what the Bible teaches on the subject. To do this we will take a look at the evidence of the incarnation in the virgin birth of Jesus Christ and the genealogies that describe the incarnation. Here we go.
