This chapter argues in defence of traditional Christology against criticism of Incarnation as involving an impossible breach in the divine life, particularly divine intervention in history. The main difficulties with such a view are that there are strong reasons for believing it to be false and that there probably could be no reasons for believing it to be true. The chapter also discusses the issues of discontinuity, consciousness, and revelation in relation to divine intervention.

Keywords: Christology; Incarnation; divine intervention; history; discontinuity; consciousness; revelation; religious criticism
