  "When thou hearest of Christ, do not think him God only, or man only, but both together. For I know Christ was hungry, and I know that with five loves he fed five thousand men, besides women and children. I know Christ was thirsty, and I know Christ turned water into wine. I know Christ was carried in a ship, and I know Christ walked on waters. I know Christ died, and I know Christ raised the dead. I know Christ was set before Pilate, and I know Christ sits with the Father.
 I know Christ was worshiped by angels, and I know Christ was stoned by the Jews. And truly, some of these I ascribe to the human, others to the divine nature; for by reason of this he is said to be both together." St. Chrysostom.

Hello Fred, greetings and good wishes.

This is foundation of Christianity. God took the form of man to save mankind. From the Bible we understand that God sent several prophets before Jesus to save man from eternal damnation. But man never listened to them. Finally, God had to send his only begotten Son into the world to show the right path to salvation.

Very inspiring post. Best wishes.
