Why did Jesus come to us like He did?

Christmas, believe, Jesus, whyWell, what is Christmas?  It is the historic record of the birth of Jesus Christ.  (Matthew 1:18-25 and Luke 2:1-20.)

Jesus was unlike any other person ever born.  The one born that night in Bethlehem was unique in all of history.  A human father and mother did not create Jesus.  Jesus had a heavenly pre-existence (John 1:1-3, 14).  He is God, the Son and Creator of the universe (Philippians 2:5-11).  Christmas is called the incarnation, a word that means “in the flesh.”  In the birth of Jesus, the eternal, all-powerful and all-knowing Creator came to earth as a human.

Why would God come to us like this?  Why would God come as a baby instead of appearing in a more significant way?  Why did God make himself a man and live among us when he knew how terribly he would be treated?

He came because He LOVES US!  It was necessary so that we could be saved!  Who do you love?  What do you believe?

    Actually, the question that interests me the most is why a god who is deeply concerned with our fate comes to us via an illiterate population rife with superstition and unrest so there was no way to get the word out in a timely or verifiable fashion? I mean, he couldn’t have spread his message through a literate culture like the Chinese? He couldn’t make the message something we could test and confirm for ourselves so we didn’t have to depend on ancient texts written by political and religious partisans each pushing their own personal agenda?

    Seriously, how does an all-knowing, all-powerful god fail so badly at communicating its message?

    1. I see your point but it’s funny when I read your post I see so much of how by God doing it this way it had to be a divine solution. Also, when you read the Bible you see over and over this type of issue with how people think they can do it and God gets them to a point they have to rely on Him to complete the task. Moses is a great example. When we think we can do the job better, this is when God shows us it is the simple way.

      So God used an orality culture in the midst of turmoil to get the job done versus using a advanced culture like we have today or even what we will have in the future.

      I have a lot of questions but I guess this is where I need to keep digging into the Bible to figure somethings out.
