Why did Jesus become human?
The latter gives a soteriological emphasis to the incarnation: the Son of God became a man so that he could save us from our sins. The former, on the other hand, speaks of the incarnation as a fulfilment of the Love of God, of his desire to be present and living amidst humanity, to “walk in the garden” with us.

The core belief
The doctrine of the Trinity is the Christian belief that: There is One God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Other ways of referring to the Trinity are the Triune God and the Three-in-One.
Why did God not speak 400 years?
It is known by some members of the Protestant community as the “400 Silent Years” because it was a span where no new prophets were raised and God revealed nothing new to his people. Many of the deuterocanonical books, accepted as scripture by Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy, were written during this time.
Why did God give us language?
God was concerned that humans had blasphemed by building the tower to avoid a second flood so God brought into existence multiple languages. Thus, humans were divided into linguistic groups, unable to understand one another.
Why is it difficult of our language about God?
Some stress that everything said about God is approximate and human language is inadequate to properly explain God. Moreover, as God is a celestial, timeless, infinite being, it is hard to describe God in a worldly language, as words used in articulating finite creatures might not adequately interpret God.
