On the Incarnation of the Eternal Word


R. B. Seeley and W. Burnside 1831

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The object of On the Incarnation of the Eternal Word is to establish these two positions: first, that the Word was made flesh; and second, that he was not made sinful flesh. That the Word was made flesh, and that he was not made sinful flesh, are propositions which lie at the very foundations of Christianity. Marcus Dods gives a general outline of the work of human redemption, and of the offices of which Christ executes the accomplishment of that work, which enables the reader to see more distinctly the nature of the Incarnation. The second half of this work examines the first four centuries of Christianity, and the views of the early Fathers on the Incarnation.
