We are, I conceive, too forgetful of the real manhood of our Redeemer, for a man he was to all intents and purposes, and I love to sing,
“A Man there was, a real Man,
Who once on Calvary died.”
He was not man and God amalgamated– the two natures suffered no confusion– he was very God, without the diminution of his essence or attributes; and he was equally, verily, and truly, man.
