"The text is a beautifully mysterious mixture of the human and the divine, one that is not fully explainable. As we embrace in the divinty of the incarnated Son, so we must embrace the text. I think there is something here to explore further..."

I think you're right on... or at least you're heading in a good direction. When we ask the question of what it means to embrace the Son, a man in whom the blood of sinners and flawed humanity flows, in every implied bodily aspect so we must embrace Word in every implied bodily aspect. The text is bodily, it is real and visible, it is the product of history and societies. It is also the Word of God. We can easily become textual Docetists if we're not careful to recognize the humanity of the text.
