The Incarnation: Part 3

From now until Christmas, Credo Magazine is completely dedicated to the Incarnation. To help us think deeply about the subject, we will be sharing lectures and sermons by esteemed theologians such as Stephen Nichols, Sinclair Ferguson, H.B. Charles Jr, Alistair Begg, and John Behr.

It was Gregory of Nazianzus who stated, “That which He has not assumed He has not healed.” As such, the Incarnation is not merely a historical occurrence. Rather, it is an event with deep soteriological implications. Furthermore, since God has become man, the doctrine has deep anthropological implications. Further still, since we expect Christ to return as the incarnate Lord, the doctrine has eschatological implications. The longer and deeper we study the Incarnation, the more we understand all areas of theology and the better we know ourselves.

The Incarnation of Christ by H.B. Charles, Jr.

It is our hope that this series helps exalt the One who is “truly God and truly man” and He who is “consubstantial with the Father as regards his divinity, and the same consubstantial with us as regards his humanity; like us in all respects except for sin; begotten before the ages from the Father as regards his divinity, and in the last days the same for us and for our salvation from Mary, the Virgin God-bearer as regards his humanity.”

H.B. Charles, Jr.

H.B. Charles is the Pastor-Teacher at the Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville and Orange Park, Florida, where he has served since the fall of 2008. Prior to joining the Shiloh Church, Charles led the Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church of Los Angeles for almost eighteen years. He regularly speak at churches, conferences, and conventions around the country. He is the author or contributing author of several books including It Happens After Prayer, On Preaching, On Pastoring, and Power in the Pulpit.
