Origen on the incarnation

“After the consideration of questions of such importance concerning the being of the Son of God, we are lost in the deepest amazement that such a nature — pre-eminent above all others — would have divested itself of its condition of majesty and would have become human.”

Quoted in David W. Bercot, ed., A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs (Peabody, Mass.: Hendrickson, 1998), 358.
