Jesus became flesh, because until He did the prophesies were unfulfilled, the promises were waiting, the symbols had no meaning, the type had no antitype, and the story had no happy ending. Imagine Cinderella without the Prince showing up to save her from her tormentors, or Sleeping Beauty never to rise again to the kiss of her Prince Charming. Imagine, the novel “To Kill A Mockingbird,” with no Atticus Finch, or Paul Harvey without “the rest of the story.” Without Jesus, there is a gaping hole in the plot of the Old Testament and main character never shows up.
