Flesh and Blood

Here's a great description of the doctrine of incarnation:

As God’s son, Jesus was at the same time flesh and blood. He was real God and real man. When Jesus walked this earth with his disciples he related to them as man to man. They were brothers, some even by blood. This physical relationship extended to all the people with whom Jesus had contact. The multitudes had come to know God as a real person. He worked with them, ate with them, talked with them, challenged them, instructed them, partied with them, trusted them, loved them, died for them, rose for them. And then he disappeared.
