Steve had asked for some help on the translation of the message from Braulio.
Hopefully the following will be helpful. I've place the translation
following Braulio's message.

Generally OIKONOMIAN is translated by stewardship, commission (as in
receiving a military commission), dispensation, administration. To translate
it as incarnation is not the most common way, but could still be considered
as within the generic family of stewardship and kinship leadership. On the
other hand, we are right to think that it is not the normal reading, but a
synonym that is more fluid might be twisted (misinterpreted). So we are
faced with the difficulty of a quite loaded reading.
