Kostenberger on the Incarnation in John's Gospel
I've recently been studying the Gospel of John, and yesterday I came across a brilliant summary of the incarnation in Kostenberger's A Theology of John's Gospel and Letters, which I thought was worth sharing here.
Feel free to add your own thoughts on the summary below!
"John views creation as the first, inaugural act of salvation history and bases his account of Jesus' coming into the world (i.e., the incarnation, John's equivalent of the Synoptic narrative of the virgin birth) on this primal act.
By this John highlights Jesus' unparalleled relationship with God the Creator and presents him as the exclusive and unique agent of God, who is his self expression - an extension, as it were (rightly understood), of his own identity and deity, the one through whom God's glory was eschatologically and definitively revealed to God's covenant community."
