X (10)

The heavenly Father uttered His hypostatic or personal Word & all came into being; but uttering His thought & His will about the existence of creation, He, at the same time, was determining for His own personal Word or Son to take upon him the burden of all - already foreseen - sinful disorders of the world. God the Word was mightily creating according to the thought of His Father but already He was dooming Himself to the immeasurable self-sacrifice in order to keep this new created world in the meaning & designation given to it -- even in spite of the foreseen infidelity of the world to its meaning & designation.
A. M. Bukharev (on Job)
