  • What does “incarnation” mean? To what does it refer in Christian doctrine?
  • Where in Scripture would you go to demonstrate the fact of the incarnation?
  • Where in Scripture would you go to answer the question, how did the Son of God become incarnate?
  • What does it mean to consider the incarnation in a theological way? Should we be dogmatic concerning this doctrine? Read the Nicene Creed and discuss its usefulness.
  • Why was it necessary for the Messiah to be God, and not a mere man?
  • What was it necessary for the Messiah to man, and not only God, an angel, or a beast? 
  • Gregory of Nazianzus (329-390 AD) famously said, “What has not been assumed has not been healed.” He said this to stress the necessity of Christ’s full humanity. What did he mean by this?
  • How does understanding the “why” of the incarnation help you to better appreciate the “fact” and the “how” of the incarnation? 
  • What difference should this doctrine make in your life?
