IX.—From a Sermon.23862386    Or, from a treatise on theology.

In the meanwhile the evangelist says with firmness, “The Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us.”23872387    John i. 14. From this we learn that the angel, when he saluted the Virgin with the words, “Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee,”23882388    Luke i. 28. intended to signify God the Word is with thee, and also to show that He would arise from her bosom, and would be made flesh, even as it is written, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee; therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.”23892389    Luke i. 35.
