The Old Testament is the revelation of the verbum incarnandum (word requiring to be incarnate), and the New Testament is the revelation of the verbum incarnatum (word incarnate): the centre of gravity in both is in the incarnation itself, to which the Old Testament is stretched out in expectation, and the New Testament looks back in fulfillment.

Torrance, Thomas F. Incarnation: The Person and Life of Christ. 45.
