Gives: “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (Jn 3:16)
This is the classic quote used to express God’s love for humanity. It connects the Trinity (God the Father giving God the Son) with the Incarnation (the giving of the Son) and the reason, to save humanity through faith.
Save humanity: “The Word became flesh for us in order to save us by reconciling us with God” (CCC 456)
The classic quote used to express the Incarnation is from John’s gospel, “The Word became flesh” (Jn 1:14). Jesus who is the Word of God assumed human nature (became flesh). It gives the reason for the Incarnation, ie redemption.
