Recently I completed a blog series taking a look at what it is to be human and what it takes to become human. The first blog in that series is Being and Becoming Human. Not only are humans, according to Genesis 1 created in God’s image and likeness, we also find that humanity finds its fulfillment when God becomes incarnate as Jesus Christ. Jesus is the God-man in whose image we humans were created and who Himself shows us that becoming human means being united with God.
That blog series is now available in one document at Being and Becoming Human (PDF).
You can find links to all my blog series as PDFs at Fr. Ted’s Blog Series.
