At last it happens! Jesus the Christ is born of a woman and is here for all to see in flesh and blood. Paul, as is often the case, is in a celebrative mood. It is as though all of creation is pulsating with his entrance into history.

Human nature has a way of enjoying secrets and naturally wants exposures to occur. We are fascinated by the possibility of something or someone being revealed. In this case it is far more than fascinating. It is thrilling beyond adequate words to depict. History seems to stop!

Our faith is deeply enriched by accepting and believing the revealed secret is for all of humankind. While it is "my gospel," as the apostle says, it is also a universal and one-of-a-kind happening that he simply attests to. But we would be impoverished without his special touch.

His words are heavily freighted in a brilliantly cast look into what God the Father had finally decided to do. ...
