Beyond all question, the mystery from which true godliness springs is great:
He appeared in the flesh,
was vindicated by the Spirit,
was seen by angels,
was preached among the nations,
was believed on in the world,
was taken up in glory.
(I Timothy 3:16)
At the very heart of the Gospel is the miracle of the incarnation: the Son of God came and lived among us, as a man, was put to death, but was then raised to life and ascended into heaven.
