    For who that sees a lion, either, made sport of by children, fails to see that he is either dead or has lost all his power? The psalmist identifies the second Lord as a "priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. But had He done even this, He would give ground The Incarnation of the Lord book suspicion against Himself, that He was not powerful against every death, but only against the death devised for Him; and so again there would have been a pretext for disbelief about the Resurrection all the same. But by dying you shall die, what else could be meant than not dying merely, but also abiding ever in the corruption of death? What then was God to do? But men, having rejected things eternal, and, by counsel of the devil, turned to the things of corruption, became the cause of their own corruption in death, being, as I said before, by nature corruptible, but destined, by the gracefollowing from partaking of the Word, to have escaped their natural state, had they remained good.

    For as a kind teacher who cares for His disciplesif some of them cannot profit by higher subjects, comes down to their level, and teaches them at any rate by simpler courses; so also did the Word of God. Or why, while when He had risen He proclaimed the Resurrection, should He cause His death to take place in secret? Especially it was unseemly to the last degree that God's handicraft among men should be done away, either because of their own carelessness, or because of the deceitfulness of evil spirits. What does Immanuel mean? Whence it was fitting for the Lord to bear this also and to spread out His hands, that with the one He might draw the ancient people, and with the other those from the Gentilesand unite both in Himself.

    Second, it was necessary for the Savior to shed His blood for the forgiveness of sins Hebrews Now let such an one be told that this too was unbefitting the Lord. The heresy compared to the hydra of the poets. Hence, too, diseases befall them, and they fall sick and die.
