When “the Word became flesh,” He did not cease, for a moment, to be God.  No doubt, He was pleased to veil His divinity and to hide His power and more especially so, at some seasons.  He emptied Himself of external marks of glory and was called “the carpenter.”  But He never laid His divinity aside.  God cannot cease to be God.  It was as the God-man that He lived, suffered, died, and rose again. – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900)
