Meditations on Christ the Redeemer

“The Manhood could suffer, but not overcome, the sharpness of death; the Godhead could suffer nothing, but overcome everything. He, therefore, that was to suffer to overcome death for us, must be partaker of both natures; that, being put to death in the flesh, He might be able to quicken Himself by His own Spirit.”

—Archbishop Usher (1581–1656)
