[February 11]
And the Logos became flesh, and dwelt among us. John 1:14(Diaglott)
BECAUSE all of the human family were children of Adam and sharers in his death sentence, no man could give to God a ransom for his brother. (Psalm 49:7) God so shut up the matter that Adam and his race could not have been redeemed except by the finding of a perfect man who would be willing voluntarily to die on their behalf. It was because there was no such man that God arranged with the Logos, his Only Begotten, that he should become a man and be the Redeemer of the race—Adam and all his children. Z'13-347 R5352:4(Hymn 62)
