Sayers: Jesus, God and man

Saturday, April 11, 2020
    Holy Saturday
    Commemoration of George Augustus Selwyn, first Bishop of New Zealand, 1878
    For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead comes also through a man. For as in Adam all die, so in Christ all will be made alive.
    —1 Corinthians 15:21-22 (NIV)
    If [Jesus] were God and nothing else, his immortality means nothing to us; if he were a man and no more, His death is no more important than yours or mine. But if He really was both God and man, then when the man Jesus died, God died too, and when the God Jesus rose from the dead, then man rose too, because they were one and the same person.
    ... Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957), Christian Letters to a Post-Christian World, Eerdmans, 1969, p. 16 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 15:21-22; John 1:4,14; 3:6; 10:10,30; 2 Cor. 5:21; 1 John 5:12
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord Jesus, You are God to men and Man to God.
