Methodius on the incarnation

He, being God, was pleased to put on human flesh, so that we, beholding the divine Pattern of our life as on a tablet, should also be able to imitate Him who painted it.
Methodius, bishop of Lycia, died c. 311. Quoted from David W. Bercot, ed., A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs (Peabody, Mass.: Hendrickson, 1998), 360.
