HOW STRANGE that God became a man.

But is it any stranger than that man is man?

Is it stranger than that each of us will die? Or that we can conceive of sin or justice or sacrifice? Or that we can conceive of such a God?  Mortal and immortal. Powerless and powerful. Creature and Creator. Loved and despised. Human and superhuman. Man and God.

Now we understand what we never understood.

But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him. Corinthians 2:9
