“For if the Incarnation were a mere appearance, such would be our redemption as well. In Christ there were two aspects: man, who was visible in him, and God, who remained invisible. He really ate as we do, as man (for he had the passions of the body in common with us); but as God he fed the five thousand with five loaves; he truly died as man, but as God he raised a dead man from a sleep of four days; as man he really slept in the boat, but as God he walked upon the waters.”

Cyril of Jerusalem, Catecheses 4, 9; PG 33, 465 A.
