Augustine – The Word Was God

22 Dec

He [Jesus, the Word of God] “was” before his own flesh; he created his own mother. He chose her in whom he should be conceived, he created her of whom he should be created. Why marvellest thou? It is God of whom I am speaking to thee: “the Word was God.”


Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus (Wheaton, IL; Crossway Books, 2008) p. 67. Adapted from St. Augustine: Homilies on the Gospel of John; Sermon LXIX
