Worth Quoting – St. Ambrose on the Son’s Eternity

July 9, 2007 § Leave a comment

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God.” “Was,” mark you, “with God.” “Was”—see, we have “was” four times over. Where did the blasphemer find it written that He “was not.” Again, John, in another passage—in his Epistle—speaketh of “That which was in the beginning.” The extension of the “was” is infinite. Conceive any length of time you will, yet still the Son “was.

St. Ambrose Bishop of Milan (A.D. 337-397)
