John Chrysostom on How God Became Jesus

So wish I knew of this quote before I wrote my chapters for the HGBJ book!

Christ did not become god from human advancement – perish the thought … We preach not a human made into a god, but confess a god made human.

Cited from M. David Litwa, Iesus Deus: The Early Christian Depiction of Jesus as a Mediterranean God (Minneapolis: Fortress, 2014), 2.
