The Logos is the Pre-incarnate Christ, according to logos Christology. If the Christ was God, he has to have existed since before the beginning; theories of how this might have been true (and still fit within Judaism) included the first theory, called logos Christology. Becoming flesh, the Word became Jesus, according to this theory. The change involved his losing some of the characteristics of deity, but it was necessary to do this so as to completely identify with and provide a payment for man. So, he pitched a tabernacle (a temporary dwelling place) with man, becoming flesh.
The beginning of the Holy Gospel, according to John. "In the beginning was the Word (Logos), and the Word (Logos) was with God, and the Word (Logos) was God. ... And the Word (Logos) became flesh, and dwelt among us. ... full of grace and of truth." Read this short passage. It's a good summary of the whole Gospel. The word, tabernacled, is sometimes used instead of, dwelt, but as I understand it, this isn't a good translation of the koine (common) New Testament Greek, but I'm no expert on that. I'll see how the NABRE translates it; and leave a comment shortly. The Catholic Church teaches that the Word lost nothing of his divinity (Godness), when he became man, Jesus Christ, in the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I hope you find this helpful. Frank

Read Exodus! In it is described the device used for this transformation..twice word for word. Where you have missed it is think standing vertical blind-like mirrors focused at the Debir effecting a Bose-Einsein-like event! Go ahead re-read it. Dont be afraid.Think bright light,focused into clouds of smoke.
