Jesus Fulfills our Destiny

How is Jesus different than Thor? You know, Thor, the god-like character from the comics who appears to be human but is really from another planet. I know, it's a silly question, but one that gets at the heart of what we will attempt to do throughout this upcoming Advent season. We will be asking the question, "Why did God take on flesh?" or "Why was Jesus born?" These questions help us unravel what has been historically called the Doctrine of the Incarnation. Most in our society will be celebrating Christmas in the weeks to come. Many understand the holiday has to do with the birth of Jesus. However, the doctrine of the Incarnation is so mysterious that even those within the Church might struggle to answer the question, "How is Jesus different than Thor?" However, if you give yourself to the account of the Incarnation I believe you will truly be marveled as you worship Jesus.

Throughout Advent we will be asking the question, "Why did God take on flesh?" or "Why was Jesus born?"  These questions help us unravel what has been historically called the Doctrine of the Incarnation.  Most in our society will be celebrating Christmas in the weeks to come.  Many understand the holiday has to do with the birth of Jesus.  However, the doctrine of the Incarnation is so mysterious that even those within the Church might struggle to answer the question.  Join us as we take Hebrews, chapter 2, as our guide to more fully adore our Lord in this season.
