Had man never sinned, he would not have died. By freely creating man, God as it were bound Himself to complete the good which He had begun.

HOW GOD BECAME MAN ANSELM: The divine and human natures cannot alternate, so that the Divine should become human or the human Divine. Nor can they be commingled to where neither would be God nor man/5(9). Available here in a modern scholarly translation, Anselm’s famous treatise Cur Deus Homo (Why the God-Man?) attempts to show unbelievers that, far from being an unfitting and irrational act, God’s incarnation as man was a suitable, even (contingently-speaking) a necessary act by which to restore the right relation of God and a human race afflicted by sin.

Anselm’s Price: $   Anselm's Cur Deus Homo or Why Did God Become Man. is an excellent, deep theological work that attempts to unravel the mystery behind the Incarnation of God in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

God became man. Not the Trinity, but the Second Person of the Trinity, the Son, the Word, became man. Re-read the opening verses of John’s Gospel. “The Word was with God, and the Word was God. All things were made by him And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.” Here we find the fact—that it was the Second Person who.

God became man, and by his own death, as we believe and affirm, restored life to the world; when he might have done this, by means of some other being, angelic or human, or merely by his will. Not only the learned, but also many unlearned persons interest themselves in this inquiry and seek for its solution.

Therefore, since many desire to. “dust from the earth,” God breathed into him a “breath of life,” and man became a “living soul”—that is, a being in communion with God, because only God is living, and only in God and through God can a soul be living.

God did not become an angel to save angels. But he did become fully human to save humans. Look at the Book God Became Human Philippians –8 May 8, Close. John Piper @JohnPiper. John Piper is founder and teacher of and chancellor of Bethlehem College & Seminary.

For 33 years, he served as pastor of Bethlehem Baptist. This short work by Anselm is a presented as an argument from reason for why God became a man. It is divided into two "books"; the first half establishes why mankind's fall from God necessitated man providing atonement.

There are what feel like some curious rabbit trails in book one, but they were likely relevant discussions years ago.4/5. The Nicene Creed does not use the exact word "Savior" in speaking of Jesus, but it does state the reason why the Word of God became incarnate in Jesus of Nazareth: "For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven."

That is why God became a man. Jesus became a man to take our place in judgement and receive God’s wrath for sin.

He became a man so that being fully God and being fully man, he could fully restore reconcile humanity to God. He became a man so that he could give all who trust in him his righteousness, the righteousness of God.
