The Incarnation of the One who is Truth

Nativity on Staff and Scrip, Dr John Dunn First posted on Monday, 23 December 2013 at 09:55



The Nativity with St George and St Vincent Ferrer 1455

By Filippo Lippi (1406 – 1469)














Christ is flanked by St George, who symbolises the victory over evil, and St Vincent, whose words in the book remind us to “Fear God, because the hour of his judgement is coming”.

Christ was born to confront all that was contemptible in the fallen state of man, epitomised by the self-righteousness and hypocrisy of the Jews and the worldly Roman pragmatism and moral relativism of Pontius Pilate.

We needed to wait for the Incarnation of that One who is Truth, infinite Wisdom, Sun of Justice, Hypostatic Hierarchy, the Divine Word, for the injustice of sin to be fully and totally revealed.
