evangelists have proclaimed that He was born of a virgin, that He
suffered upon a beam of wood, and that He appeared from the dead; that He
also ascended to the heavens, and was glorified by the Father, and is the
Eternal King; that He is the perfect Intelligence, the Word of God, who
was begotten before the light; that He was the Founder of the universe,
along with it (light), and the Maker of man; that He is All in all:
Patriarch among the patriarchs; Law in the laws; Chief Priest among
priests; Ruler among kings; the Prophet among prophets; the Angel among
angels; the Man among men; Son in the Father; God in God; King to all
eternity. For it is He who sailed [in the ark] along with Noah, and who
guided Abraham; who was bound along with Isaac, and was a Wanderer with
Jacob; the Shepherd of those who are saved, and the Bridegroom of the
Church; the Chief also of the cherubim, the Prince of the angelic powers;
God of God; Son of the Father; Jesus Christ; King for ever and ever.
