Reflecting on the Incarnation

This past Sunday we looked at the voluntary humiliation of Christ in Philippians 2:5-8. As we examined this incredible passage, we asked one simple quesiton, "Since Jesus gave up His rights and privileges will you give up your rights and privileges?" It is an important question; the question Paul intends we ask from this passage. It also raises many other questions about the Incarnation of the Son of God. I mentioned that I would post some resources for you that will be helpful in addressing some of those questions. You will find those resources below. Use them to dig deeper into the doctrine of the Incarnation.

Resources for study on the Incarnation:

Dr. Bruce Ware on the Humanity of Jesus

Dr. Bruce Ware on the Divinity of Jesus

Athanasius' classic work entitiled "On the Incarnation"

Jonathan Edwards "Of Christ's Incarnation"

 

In addition to the links presented above, there are more resources available in book form. If you would like, you can purchase Wayne Grudem's "Systematic Theology" here.  His treatment of the Incarnation is found in Chapter 26 - The Person of Christ "How is Jesus fully God and fully man, yet one person?" It is an excellent resource worth having on your bookshelf.
