Bible Term: Incarnation

Incarnation means to personify or take on bodily form.

The words incarnate and incarnation are not found in the Bible, but the concept is; it refers to Jesus. Jesus, as God, became human through his incarnation.

As such, Jesus is fully God and fully human (a difficult, but profound paradox to grasp).
