- Dec 31, 2010The prophets who proclaimed Him as Emmanuel, born of a Virgin, were showing forth the union of the Word of God with His own handiwork. They were announcing that the Word would be made flesh, that the Son of God would be the Son of Man, that the pure One, in a pure way, would open that pure womb which regenerates men in God, that pure womb which He Himself made to be pure.
Irenaeus, Against the Heresies
