Terry Waite, who was a hostage in Lebanon for five long years, tells in his autobiography, how for month after month he was kept chained hand and foot. Most of his clothes were taken from him, his shoes and even his watch. For hours at a time he could only curl up as a baby and he says he felt just as helpless. As Christmas time came round he thought, "Well, that’s how Jesus must have been - utterly vulnerable and dependent on others. He had left the presence of his Father, left the glories of heaven to take on human form, as a helpless baby."
