  Incarnation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Incarnation, which literally means enfleshment, refers to the conception, and live birth of a sentient creature (generally human) who is the material manifestation of an entity or force whose original nature is immaterial.
Incarnation should be carefully distinguished from the phenomenon of apotheosis, which is the temporary manifestation of a divine or archetypal force, entity or energy within and through a human being during the course of ritual, religious exercise, meditation, or other spiritual activities.

For Christians, the incarnation is a central dogma referring to the belief that the eternal son of God, the second person of the Trinity, became man in the person of Jesus Christ.

The implication of such a construction of the result of the incarnation is that God the Son, kenotically "emptying" himself, divested himself of his attribute of being always and everywhere immediately present in his universe.

 The orthodox understanding of the incarnation
The doctrine of the incarnation was debated in meticulous detail from every angle, and a series of Church councils subsequently convened to consider virtually every conceivable twist and variation on the nature of the Godhead.

 KUYPER ON THE INCARNATION OF THE WORD
The incarnation as such implied a limitation, a diminution, and thus a humiliation, irrespective of the fall into sin and its consequences.

A young, budding theologian is critically analyzing one of Kuyper's ideas and is comparing it with the manuscripts of the Greek church fathers and the dogmas of the early church.
