“Can it be true? Is that little babe in that manger in the innermost reality of His being that eternal Son Who occupied the place of supreme authority in the past ages? Is this little baby the same One Who was filled with the glory of God and all heaven? Oh, wonder of wonders, He has indeed taken the lowest place! What ought He to have had? But what He did have was a manger in a stable! There was no place for Him in the world that He Himself had created. ‘He came unto His own things, and they that were His own received Him not’ (John 1:11, ASV). What a crisis in the ages!”

T. Austin-Sparks, “The Holy Spirit’s Biography of Christ.”
