Tertullian on the incarnation

However, a word of caution must be addressed to all who refuse to believe that our flesh was in Christ, on the grounds that it did not come from the seed of a human father.  Let them remember that Adam himself received this flesh of ours without the seed of a human father.

Tertullian, Christian writer from Carthage, North Africa, c. 160-230. Quoted from David W. Bercot, ed., A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs (Peabody, Mass.: Hendrickson, 1998), 356.
