The Incarnation and the Cross

“The stupendous fact of man’s redemption was an end worthy of such a cost, but the incarnation was not necessary except on the supposition of redemption from sin. The incarnation and the cross are thus viewed as inseparable, but both as a MEANS to an end, viz. the vindication of divine justice, the expiation of sin, the meritorious obedience to be rendered to the law.”

-George Smeaton, from his “The Apostle’s Doctrine of the Atonement”, p.12
