“There is only one Physician, having both flesh and spirit, born and unborn, God becomes man, true life in death, from Mary and from God, first passible and then impassible – Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Ignatius of AntiochTo the Ephesians  7,2

“For our God Jesus Christ, according to God’s economy, was conceived by Mary of the seed of David (cf. Jn 7:42: Rom 3:27), but also by the Holy Spirit. He was born and baptized, that by His passion He might purify the water” 

Ignatius of AntiochTo the Ephesians  18,2
