“Preparing for Christmas” is a series of posts helping prepare our minds and hearts to make Christmas a time of worshipping Christ. In this post, we want to consider the humanity of Christ. Here are some resources toward this end:
- Begin with Russell Moore’s reflection on whether or not Jesus could have gotten a cold.
- Then, move on to Mike Reeves’ article, “Smothering Baby Jesus” which shows why the Incarnation set theology off in the right direction.
- Finally, listen to Ligon Duncan’s talk on “The Humanity of Christ in the Gospels”.
*If you’re really keen on theology, check out the classic work by Athanasius of Alexandria (293-373), “On the Incarnation.”
