Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

No new personality, therefore, originated with the conception and birth of Jesus.  This distinguishes His birth from that of all other men.  Their birth means the existence of a person that before had no existence, or that had potential existence only, according to the principle of heredity.  But when Jesus was born, the Person was that of the Eternal Son of God.... The Person comes entirely from the divine nature. -- Henry Eyster Jacobs, *Elements* p. 85.
