Comfort via Martin Chemnitz

This is our greatest comfort. For because of His deity He can save us, and because of His humanity, with which He suffered and was tempted, He can show compassion for us. He shows before the face of God the wounds that He received for our redemption. He loves and cares for us because He has bought us at so great a price and has given His life for us. "And no one hates his own flesh." [Eph. 5:29]

~ The Two Natures in Christ, J. A. O. Preus, trans. (St. Louis: Concordia, 1971) pp. 337-38.
