Here he was:

The eternal one, caught in a moment of time.

The Omnipresence corralled in a cave manger.

The Omnipotent cradled in a helpless infant who could not even raise His head from the straw.

The Omniscience confined in a baby who would not say a word.

The Christ who created the heavens and the earth cradled in a manger in a cave stable.

For when God would draw near to a cold, cruel, sinful, suffering humanity, he placed a baby in a manger in Bethlehem.

[The Wesleyan Bible Commentary, 1986. p. 221]
