quote: Jesus as our Savior

 

“This is the way, dear friends, in which we found our salvation, namely Jesus Christ, the high priest of our offerings, the benefactor and helper of our weakness.

“Through him we look steadily into the heights of heaven; through him we see as in a mirror his faultless and transcendent face; through him the eyes of our hearts have been opened; through him our foolish and darkened mind springs up into the light; through him the Master has willed that we should taste immortal knowledge, for he, being the radiance of his majesty, is as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent.”

1 Clement 36.1-2 [penned about 90 A.D.], as rendered by Michael W. Holmes, The Apostolic Fathers: Greek Texts and English Translations, p. 93
