The Incarnation: The Critical Issues
Gerald O’Collins outlines 12 issues: the particular, historical truth of the union of divinity and humanity in the one person of Jesus Christ; his personal pre‐existence; the paradox in holding the Chalcedonian teaching of Jesus being truly divine and fully human; the objection that the incarnation entails unfairness on the part of God; the divine and human wills and minds of Christ in their sinless harmony; the virginal conception as the way the incarnation actually happened; God's reasons for the incarnation; its revelatory and redemptive impact; the relationship of the incarnation to the crucifixion and resurrection; the incarnation being possible only for the Word of God; the incarnation as a once and for all occurrence; and the credibility of the incarnation.
