God Became A Baby

He made everything. And then he gave up his rights and chose to enter his creation as a human baby. We aren’t told the details of _how_ this happened. And rather than becoming entangled with speculation, it is better to follow the wisdom of Ephrem the Syrian (4th century):

“Blessed is the person, my Lord, who knows that Your Greatness is incomprehensible. And quickly restrains his tongue, so that it honors Your birth with silence.”
