Athanasius, On the Incarnation book
Who is Jesus? The question was very important in the early centuries of the church and it still is today. Was Jesus just a man, a good moral teacher, but nothing more? Was he God, who merely appeared as a man, but who was not truly human? Just like many ask the question today, so did many in Athanasius’ day – who is Jesus, and what is his relationship to God? Athanasius gives an answer to this question that proves to be foundational to the way the church after him would understand Jesus’ identity.
