Cultural relevance is one way that we extend incarnational Christianity.  In missiological language, we want to plant and grow culturally indigenous Christianity.  This is of course modeled throughout the scriptures and in the Christian tradition.  It’s not a stretch to suggest that Jesus left the culture and the society of the Trinity and completely adapted to first century Galilean, Aramaic speaking, hillbilly Jewish culture, completely adapting the initial form of the revelation to those people, employing all of their appropriate cultural forms, language, patterns of teaching, etc.
