Man anthrpomorphises everything because being only man he can do nothing else. It is impossible for him to ever know what it is like to be a dog because he is not a dog. It is impossible for him to ever know what is like to be an ape, regardless of any similararities, because he is not an ape. Man understands about dogs and apes, but he understands what is like being a man.
God, in demonstration of His eternal love, blessed us beyond our understanding in becoming one of us. He not only conveyed His this Love by condescending to our level, but He eliminated all chance of doubt of His understanding our circumstances by condescending to become as we are. God can say, in no uncertain terms, that He knows what we are going through.
What is even more miraculous is that we comprehend any of this.
