28 - Behold, A Virgin Shall Conceive
In this twenty-eighth episode, we read the Scriptural witness and account of the Lord's Incarnation, from the Prophets in the Old Testament, and from the Gospels and Epistles in the New Testament.
27 - The Word Became Flesh & Dwelt Among Us
In this twenty-seventh episode, we begin our meditation upon the Lord's coming in the flesh, the long-awaited Incarnation, and set out eight essential points to consider over the next several episodes.
26 - So Where Is Heaven Anyway?
In this twenty-sixth episode, we discuss what it means that Jesus Christ comes down from heaven, remembering that in this case, and many others, the heights of heaven refer to the Eternal Divinity of God Himself, and not to the geography or altitude of heaven.
In the course of the episode, we refer to the audio and written work of Fr. Stephen Freeman. We therefore include links to his podcast (http://www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/freeman) and to purchase his book, Everywhere Present (https://store.ancientfaith.com/everywhere-present-christianity-in-a-one-storey-universe/).
25 - Behold What Manner of Love
In this twenty-fifth episode, we marvel at the God's entrance into His Creation, and consider the wondrous truth that He has come to live in our midst because He loves us and desires to reconcile us to Himself.
24 - Tidings of Great Joy
In this twenty-fourth episode, we pivot from the Divinity of the Lord which we have been discussing to the marvelous matter of His Humanity, His presence in our midst.
23 - Interlude - Defining Terms
In this twenty-third episode, we pause to review some of the theological terminology we have been using, and to emphasize the centrality of the Person of Jesus Christ to the Christian Rule of Faith.
