"Christian revelation is always pointed, concrete, and specific. Our word for that is 'incarnational' or enfleshed. Walter Brueggemann calls it brilliantly 'the scandal of the particular.'
Christianity is not a Platonic world of ideas and theories about which you can be right or wrong, or observe from a distance. Incarnation is not something you measure or critique or analyze, but Someone you meet! This pattern reaches its fullness in the enfleshment of the Divine in one ordinary-looking man named Jesus.
We dare to believe that God materialised in human form, so we could fall in love with a real person, which is the only way we fall in love. It is almost impossible to give your life warmly for an idea, a force, an energy, or a concept.
