The Light of the World is Born!

The light of the world is born! We know what the incarnation (Tewahdo) is, but why is it so?

"God created us out of love and promised to love us. He created man in His own image and in His likeness and gave him dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and everything that moves on the earth (c. Genesis 1).

In His incarnation, He came with meekness and without executive authority to rule in this world, but only with the name of "Savior" to save us (c. Matthew 1:21; Luke 2:11) and "Immanuel that we may understand that God with us" (c. Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:22-23).

"The Lord did not come to make a display. He came to heal and to teach suffering men. For one who wanted to make a display the thing would have been just to appear and dazzle the beholders. But for Him Who came to heal and to teach the way was not merely to dwell here, but to put Himself at the disposal of those who needed Him.” (St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation).
