Gerhard and Walther

The reason the Son of God became man is so that we through Him could become partakers of the divine nature and become God’s children.—Johann Gerhard, Schola Pietatis I:59

By letting Himself be slaughtered and sacrificed, Christ received the punishment for mankind’s sin, satisfying fully the righteousness of God. All of Satan’s accusations against fallen man thus came to an end. Christ destroyed Satan’s kingdom and severed the bands of death and damnation.—C. F. W. Walther, God Grant It!, pp. 39, 40
