The incarnation, both in its announcement to the world and in its execution
by God is counterintuitive to our notions of power and authority. We
generally idealize people with a pedigree, position of authority, or wealth
and overlook those who are on the margins. We generally praise the self
sufficient and scoff at those who are in need. Yet God chose to work
through the outcasts and the marginalized.
