Quote of the Day

Justin Martyr:

And we will demonstrate that we rationally worship the one who became the teacher of these things to us, and who was born for this, Jesus Christ, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, the procurator of Judaea at the time of Tiberius Caesar. For we have learnt that he is the son of the true God, and we hold him in second place, with the prophetic Spirit in the third rank. For it is there they declare our madness to be manifest, saying we give the second place after the unchangeable and eternal God and begetter of all to a crucified man, as they do not know the mystery in this, to which we urge you to give your attention, as we expound it.

Apology 1.13.3-4 (Minns & Parvis translation)
