Quote of the Day: Athanasius on the Atonement

“He [‘Christ’] suffered these things, not for His own sake but for ours. ‘Thou has made Thy wrath to rest upon me’ [Psalm 88:7, 16] . . . He suffered for us, and bore in Himself the wrath that was
the penalty of our transgression”

—Athanasius, Letter to Marcellinus on the Interpretation of the Psalms
