The Word Made Flesh

John's Gospel begins by teaching that Jesus Christ is the Word of God. Just as we come to know a person through speaking to them and listening to their words, we come to know God by listening to Jesus speak to us. Yet, Jesus did not come solely to speak. He came to live among us so that there is nothing we will suffer that He has not also suffered. But most of all, He came to die for us. In the incarnation, God became vulnerable to us - even to death - and yet He loved us so much that He was glad to so. This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on December 13, 2009. Series "Christmas 2009". Scripture: John 1:1-14; Hebrews 2:14-18; Mark 2:5
