The Incarnation of Jesus means that, though he is the Son of God, Jesus is one like us (Heb 4:15), having experienced a full range of emotions, struggles, successes, and failures. Far from removing himself from the pain and suffering of his day, Jesus reached out in compassion, restored those who were suffering, and returned frequently to his source of strength. As we prepare for the Christmas celebration of the Incarnation, these sessions provide us an opportunity to reflect on the humanity of Jesus.
