“For this is how God loved the world: he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” John 3:16
God chose his people and they still turned from him. Prophets temporarily brought them back but the relationship with God was a rough one. So God sent his only Son so that we would be able to understand in the flesh of our flesh. We could finally connect to God through our own humanity. Jesus Christ, God’s only Son connected us to Him, and His Father, God our Father.
