The need for incarnation

I don’t know if this world has a meaning which escapes me, but I know that I don’t know this meaning and that for the moment, it’s imossible for me to know it. What can a meaning outside of my condition mean for me? I can only understand it in human terms.

Albert Camus, in Olivier Todd, p.156

All revelation from God is a condescension to human limitations. When the Ten Commandments were written, they were written in an intelligible, human language. the supreme condescending revelation is the ‘Word made flesh’ (John 1.14) who dwelt among us.
