Athanasius: the divine body

Monday, May 2, 2022
    Feast of St. Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, Teacher, 373
    The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say “and to seeds,” meaning many people, but “and to your seed,” meaning one person, who is Christ.
    —Galatians 3:16 (NIV)
    The Word was not degraded by receiving a body... Rather, he deified what he put on; and, more than that, he bestowed this gift upon the race of men.
    ... St. Athanasius (293?-373), from Contra Arianos, i.42, in The Early Christian Fathers, Henry Scowcroft Bettenson, London: Oxford University Press, 1969, p. 384 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 3:16; Rom. 9:5; John 10:34-36; Col. 1:15; 1 Tim. 3:16; Heb. 1:1-3; 10:5-7; 1 John 1:1-3; 4:2-3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the heir to all, and by Your grace, we are co-heirs with You.
