The study of themes plays a major part in biblical theology, and great events and roles that are pivotal in Christology can be successfully placed in a 'promise-fulfilment' framework. However, is incarnation an anomaly? Was incarnation part of the hope of Israel?

Cole's stimulating study addresses such questions. He begins by exploring the purpose of creation in terms of God fashioning a palace-temple for dwelling with the creature made in the divine image, then follows God's acts in Israel's history to redeem a people of his own among whom he will dwell. He considers Israel's messianic hope, and then the New Testament testimony: "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us"? (John 1:14), in the person of Jesus Christ.

Cole also addresses the question raised by Anselm - "Why did God become man?"? - and finds abundant New Testament answers. He concludes with a consideration of the theological and existential significance of the incarnation.
