Something stupendous

“The incarnation means that he who never began to be in his specific identity as Son of God, began to be what he eternally was not. . . . The thought of incarnation is stupendous, for it means the conjunction in one person of all that belongs to Godhead and all that belongs to manhood. . . . The Son of God was sent and came into this world of sin, of misery, and of death.”
