More from Augustine

Fits the themes from Hebrews (our recent Sunday message focus):

For as man, [Jesus] is mediator, but as the Word, he is in no middle place, since he is equal to God, and God with God, and together one God. . . .

For us, he is before you [God the Father] both victor and victim, and therefore victor for the reason that he is victim. For us, before you, he is both priest and sacrifice, and therefore priest because sacrifice, making us your sons instead of servants, by being born of you, and by becoming servants to us.

Confessions, 10.43.68-69
