** The prophets, as well as the evangelists and apostles, speak sometimes of the divine, sometimes of the human nature of Christ : when they speak of the former, they sbew forth its glory, excellence, omnipotence, omniscience, and eternity; when they speak of the latter, they shew forth its humiliations, affitictions, sufferings, and death. And those who do not make the proper distinction be. i ween the two natures of Christ, the human and the di. vine, will ever make blunders as well as the Jews. It is only on the ground of two natures in Christ, that the scriptures which speak of him, either in the Old or New Testament, can be possibly understood. No position in the Gospel is plaider than this, God was manisest in the flesh.”
Dr. Adam Clarke's Commentary, Joho zii. 34.
