Brian Leftow argues that divine timelessness and the incarnation are compatible. He first sketches what it means to say that God is timeless. He then presents two major arguments for holding that divine timelessness is incompatible with the incarnation. With this done, he sets out enough of the orthodox doctrine of the incarnation to let him address the arguments and show how they fail. He concludes that it is prima facie plausible that God can be both timeless and incarnate.
