Athanasius - John 12

This is a quote from Athanasius concerning John 12: “For it is only on the cross that a man dies with his hands spread out. And so it was fitting for the Lord to bear this also and to spread out his hands, that with the one he might draw the ancient people and with the other those from the Gentiles and unite both in himself. For this is what he himself has said, signifying by what manner of death he was to ransom all: 'I, when I am lifted up,' he says, 'shall draw all unto me.'”
