What New Mystery Is This?

Nature trembled and said with astonishment:

What new mystery is this?

The judge is judged and remains silent;

The invisible one is seen and does not hide himself;

The incomprehensible one is comprehended and does not resist;

The unmeasurable one is measured and does not struggle;

The one beyond suffering suffers and does not avenge himself;

The immortal one dies and does not refuse death.

What new mystery is this?

~ Melito of Sardis, Fragment 13, Quoted from The Early Christians in Their Own Words
