Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Remains of the Second and Third Centuries.: Fragment VII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

VII.

On the Nature of Christ. 3635

For there is no need, to persons of intelligence, to attempt to prove, from the deeds of Christ subsequent to His baptism, that His soul and His body, His human nature 3636 like ours, were real, and no phantom of the imagination.  For the deeds done by Christ after His baptism, and especially His miracles, gave indication and assurance to the world of the Deity hidden in His flesh.  For, being at once both God and perfect man likewise, He gave us sure indications of His two natures: 3637   of His Deity, by His miracles during the three years that elapsed after His baptism; of His humanity, during the thirty similar periods which preceded His baptism, in which, by reason of His low estate 3638 as regards the flesh, He concealed the signs of His Deity, although He was the true God existing before all ages.
