Perfection & Presence | Lecture 4 of 6
In the fourth lecture of the series, Professor Webster carefully explicates each word of the all-important phrase, “The Word became flesh.” In so doing, Webster’s discussion spans an impressive breadth of theological relationships, including the relationships of immanence and transcendence, created and uncreated, human and divine, history and eternity, Word and flesh. In the midst of doing so, Webster works to situate the human history of this divine life within the history of God’s covenant with Israel.
