Quote on Karl Rahner on the Incarnation

“What does it mean that the Word of God became human? Isn’t God unchanging? What we have to say is that God, who is unchangeable in Godself, can become changeable in something else. The divine freedom means that God can become not-God, finite, Other-than-God. In emptying Godself and giving Godself away, God can make the other his own reality. Everything that God makes has, as a result of God’s self-giving love, the potential to become an expression of God and God’s love. All theology, says Rahner, is therefore anthropology, and all anthropology is Christology. To know what it is to be human is to know Christ, and to know Christ is to know God.” (From  Marika, the host of Theologies blog. In attempting to explain Rahner)
