"For it is a fact that the more unbelievers pour scorn on Him, so much the more does He make His Godhead evident. The things that they, as men, rule out as impossible, He plainly shows to be possible; that which they deride as unfitting, His goodness makes most fit; and things which these wiseacres laugh at as "human" He by His inherent might declares divine. Thus by what seems His utter poverty and weakness on the cross He overturns the pomp and parade of idols, and quietly and hiddenly wins over the mockers and unbelievers to recognize Him as God."
~St. Athanasius On the Incarnation pg.25
