Do not say: ‘If the only begotten Son was begotten of the Father, how could he be born a second time of the Virgin?’ He is born from the Father according to his divine nature; he is born from the Virgin according to the economy of salvation. First as God, then as man

Theodotus of Anchyra, Homily 2, 7; PG 77, 1377 B-C.
