A tent of meeting tried to contain something of God’s nature. There was a tabernacle, and a temple, and an ark, and a Holy of Holies, but none of them could not contain God. They all passed away, yet God still desired to dwell among his people, he still wanted to be with us. And so, he took on flesh like us. And within Mary’s womb became the temple of the very enfleshed Word of God! The one who could not be contained was now contained! The incarnate Son of God within her. Theotokos, the God-bearer, the fulfilment of the Law and the beginning of a new Covenant of grace whose name is Jesus Emmanuel, God with us!
