Explains the concept and meaning of incarnation from several different theological perspectives.

This paper offers an analysis of the concept, meaning, and interpretation of incarnation. The paper also describes the different views of incarnation held by ancient religions and discusses the dilemma within Christianity between the Church’s traditional doctrine on incarnation and the newer, more current doctrine of incarnation.
We are here concerned with that notion which the Christian world takes as central to its faith. Incarnation is the Christian doctrine of the union of God and man in the person of Jesus Christ. Or in the words of the dictionary the monotheistic system of beliefs and practices based on the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus as embodied in the New Testament and emphasizing the role of Jesus as savior. We will quote different writers drawing on their writing in portions not equally but in proportion to their relevance to our subject which is of course incarnation (Morris 1986; 2004).
