Throughout the history of the Old Testament, God never gave up on the human family, even though, with every sin, the human family kept giving up on him.
And when the time was right, God himself took human flesh in order to do what no merely human being could do: reestablish once and forever a bedrock of total trust, an everlasting bridge, between himself and mankind. This, essentially, was the mission of Jesus Christ. In order to redeem the universe, and the human race, Jesus had to restore the very core of everything: he had to restore the trust that had been shattered.
