Excerpt from Fitness of Christianity to Man

The point, dropping out of account here any difference between the Hebrew and the Greek dress of the thought, is, that in the universe, or Whole reality of things, the two spheres, natural and supernatural, are equally real; in both of them there is life; they Open into one another; life passes, in persons, from one to the other both are for men; and the one living bond of unity, whose life and light are common to both alike is The Word Whether in the Jewish mind, which was not metaphysical, or in Gnostic speculation, Wisdom corresponded best with the second or third person in the Christian Trinity is not material. The Wisdom of God coming down to the earth is a divine Man, seen by St. John, -the man of men, who raises humanity to heaven. The more we think this thought, and trace it through its relations, the more we shall find it to signify the faith that was once delivered to the saints.
