Patristic Quote of the Day

One and the same Lord, who is greater than the temple, greater than Solomon, and greater than Jonah, confers gifts upon men; that is, His own presence and the resurrection from the dead. He does not change God; He proclaims not another Father but that very same one who always has more to measure out to those of His household.—St. Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 4.9.2

Perhaps an origin of the prophet, priest, and king notion of Christ's office?
