One of the greatest theologians of Christianity, Thomas Aquinas states, “Since the Word of God is true God, it is impossible that the Word be changed into flesh.”



“The Word was made flesh”, from the Syriac translation should say, “The Word was realized by the flesh,” or as Thomas Aquinas puts it “The Word was assumed by the flesh” rather than “became flesh”.


The Holy Spirit appeared visibly as a dove at the baptism, and later as tongues of fire to the Apostles, but like the Word as to flesh, the Spirit did not become a dove or fire.


Also when John saw “Jesus walking”, this is a metaphor, just as when Adam and Eve “heard the voice of God, walking in the garden” of Eden, - (Gen.3:8)


Jesus Christ appeared visibly in the world but it did not make God or His Son flesh. 


THE ROMAN CATHOLIC ST. THOMAS AQUINAS was also one of the greatest theologians of Protestant Christianity because Protestant Christianity had its origin in the Catholic Church.

Protestants affirm that
the Christian Church is the community of all true believers under the Lordship of Christ.

Protestants and Evangelicals believe the Church is one, holy, apostolic and catholic. Protestants are therefore part of the Catholic Church.



There was no fleshly person called Jesus Christ, there was only the Spirit of Christ, the Son of God according to one of the greatest theologians, if not the greatest theologian, of Christianity Thomas Aquinas.

What John the Baptist was teaching was that the Son of God, the Christ, was beyond what the Jews looked at,“among you stands one whom you do not know” (Jn.1:26) since in his appearance in the flesh, he declared “I am not the Christ.”

When John was lustrating in Bethany at the Jordan Crossing, “He looked at the Living God while He walked and said, Behold the Prophesied One! When he said it, two of his disciples heard it; and they followed Jesus (or the Spirit of the Living God).”

James, and Andrew were the two witnesses, gathered in His name, where the Living God was in the midst of them.

From thereon we hear very little of John himself in the flesh, but rather hear of John the Baptist's testimony of Jesus, the Living God as the Word and Son of God.

John was not Jesus, but was a human witness, as were the other Apostles, that gave testimony of the Incarnation, in multiplicity and variety of the One Person.

Jesus Christ was made visible on earth through the words and works of John the Baptist and the Apostles.
