The humanity of God’s deity

“God does indeed come from God and only from God, and he is determined by nobody and nothing other than by himself; however, he determines himself to be God not without humanity. That is the sense of the New Testament statements about the preexistence of the Son of God identified with Jesus.... God comes from God, but he does not want to come to himself without us. God comes to God, but with humanity. Thus, God’s humanity belongs to his divinity.”

—Eberhard Jüngel, God as the Mystery of the World (Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 1983), p. 37.
