I WOULD help some to understand what Jesus came from the home of our Father to be to us
and do for us. ...
Everything in the world is more or less misunderstood at first:
- we have to learn what it is,
- and come at length to see that it must be so,
- that it could not be otherwise.
Then we know it;
and we never know a thing really until we know it thus.
(George Macdonald, Hope of the Gospel, p.1)
