Patristic Quote for the Day

I owe this quote to my good friend Duane Osterloth, a scholar currently working on his doctorate at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I have sadly not yet had the opportunity to read the document he references, but given this particular citation, I'm eager to (too many books, not enough time...)

Theodoret of Cyrus writes, "But he [Christ] came in, even though the doors were closed, just as he came out of the womb, although the bars of virginity were locked, and just as he walked on the sea." Eranistes, FC 106, 126.

Careful readers of the Formula of Concord will notice why the citation is of interest...
