  The Greek word, which is translated as manifest, manifested, or appeared depending on which Bible translation you use, is transliterated as phaneroo¯, or fanerow. To aid in understanding 1Ti 3:16, it needs to be established what this word meant to the writer of the manuscript, and to those he was writing to.

The word that Bible translators have rendered as, manifest, manifested, or appeared, which is transliterated as phaneroo¯, or fanerow has the following meaning according to the source indicated.
  - Strong's Greek Dictionary
      "appear, manifestly declare, (make) manifest (forth), show (self)."
  - Thayer's Greek Definitions
      " of a person - expose to view, make manifest, to show one’s self, appear; to become known, to be plainly recognized, thoroughly understood who and what one is."';
  - Noah Webster's American English Dictionary
      "Plain, open, clearly visible to the eye or obvious to the understanding; apparent; not obscure or difficult to be seen or understood."

The meaning and intent of the word used can only lead to the belief that the author, the Apostle Paul, was teaching Timothy,
that the man Jesus Christ was also God Incarnate.
