The subject of this chapter is how God became a man, i.e., the incarnation of the Son of God. Man’s salvation is not possible without it, for it is an essential prerequisite for Jesus’ death and resurrection. Peterson investigates the Old Testament, the Synoptic Gospels, the Gospel of John, and the Epistles, noting their witness to Christ’s birth.
