“Yes, Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God who comes into the world.”
Mary answered the Lord Jesus in this way after he asked if she believed that he was the resurrection and the life. It demonstrates great understanding of Jesus’ identity and mission. John records her confession as a beautiful example of people coming to faith.
How does Jesus’ “coming into the world” (his incarnation) fit into the gospel story? Is it a part of the gospel? What about those who say that only Christ’s death, burial, resurrection are the basic facts of the gospel?
