“In Christ, what God communicates to man is not something, but his very self […] In the act of creation, God does not communicate himself, but creates a reality wholly distinct from himself, but here in Jesus Christ God acts in such a way that he is himself in his act, and what he acts he is, and what he is he acts […] Thus we must think of the person of Christ and work of Christ as completely one, so that he is in himself what he reveals of the Father, and he is in himself what he does all through his life and on the cross in reconciliation. It is only because Jesus is that in himself, and lives it out in himself, that he reveals the Father and reconciles the world.”

T.F. Torrance, Incarnation, 107-108
