What does it mean that Christ took on flesh and dwelt among us?

Christmas is about Christ. Particularly, Christmas is about the birth of Christ and his coming into the world, taking on human flesh. In this season, we remember God becoming incarnate, embodied. While we often look at the gospels for Christmas stories (and rightly so!), Mark Roberts chooses here to consider passages that really dig deep into Christ’s becoming human and taking on a body. Philippians and Hebrews may not be what come to mind when many of us think of the story of Christmas, but they really offer us much when it comes to thinking about what it means that Christ took on flesh and dwelt among us. We invite you on this journey with us, and we hope that the reflections here are a helpful reminder of what this season truly means.
