For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – Saint John the Apostle

Saint Melito of Sardis

Born as a son,
led forth as a lamb,
sacrificed as a sheep,
buried as a man,
He rose from the dead as a God,
for He was by nature God and Man.
He is all things: He judges, and so He is Law;
He teaches, and so He is Word;
He saves, and so He is Grace;
He begets, and so He is Father,
He is begotten, and so He is Son;
He suffers, and so He is Sacrifice;
He is buried, and so He is Man;
He rises again, and so He is God.
This is Jesus Christ, to Whom belongs Glory for all ages.

-- Saint Melito of Sardis Bishop and Martyr
