The Incarnation

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14). This verse describes one of the most important distinctions between Christianity and all other religions. God took the initiative to reach out to us in the Incarnation. Jesus, the second person of the triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), took on a human nature (including a body) and entered our earthly life. Being fully human, Jesus was miraculously conceived in a virgin’s womb, born in Bethlehem, grew in wisdom and stature, experienced pain, suffering and humiliation, all without sin. Being fully God, the Son created and sustains the universe and ultimately holds all authority and power over it. And yet he willingly sacrificed himself to atone for the sins of humanity.

The Incarnation uniquely reveals God’s love and care for us, demonstrating his desire for a relationship with us. RTB exists to proclaim this truth far and wide so that others will trust in Jesus’ payment for their sin and receive his offer of eternal life.
