I have a question that greatly troubled me when I first encountered it. During my early theological studies in school I read in my textbook that God is immutable. That is, He is unchanging. However, I soon came across the standard doctrine of the incarnation of Christ, which states something to the effect, the Second person of the Trinity (properly the Logos or the Son) added to Himself a human nature through His incarnation as Jesus. Now, that seems very much like a change to me. Surely there is a better way to understand the incarnation that does not cause a mutation in the immutable God?
