Here is something marvelous

The boundless essence of the Word

was united with human nature into one person,

yet we have no idea of any imprisonment.

The Son of God descended miraculously from heaven,

yet without abandoning heaven;

was pleased to be conceived miraculously in the Virgin’s womb,

to live on the earth,

and hang upon the cross,

yet always filled the world as from the beginning.

John Calvin, Institutes 2.13.4
