Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

His sacred soul actually departed the body while at the same time the personal union of the divine and human nature was in no way torn apart, since both body and soul remain united with the person of God's Son. This, then, is a great and (for us humans) an incomprehensible mystery. -- Johann Gerhard, *An Explanation of the History of the Suffering and Death of our Lord Jesus Christ* p. 286
