So I'm studying for exams now. The other day while studying for my sacraments exam, it hits me: The incarnation is the fulfillment of God's Old Testament promise to marry His people. He truly became bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh so that we could be completely united to Him. Jesus the Son, left His father and clung to his wife, His spouse the church, so that the two may become one flesh. As Paul says in Ephesians 5:32, this truly is a great mystery!
