Both God and Man

Still They Speak

“It may be much to say that it is because he [Jesus Christ] is man that he is capable of growth in wisdom, and because he is God that he is from the beginning Wisdom Itself. It is more to say that because he is man he is able to pour out his blood, and because he is God his blood is of infinite value to save; and that it is only because he is both God and Man in one person, that we can speak of God purchasing his Church with his own blood (Acts. 20:28). And unless God has purchased his Church with his own blood, in what shall his Church find a ground for its hope?” –Benjamin B. Warfield p. 166 from essay The Human Development of Jesus in Selected Shorter Writings Vol. 1
