The cradle and the cross.

“The crucial significance of the cradle at Bethlehem lies in its place in the sequence of steps that led the Son of God to the cross of Calvary, and we do not understand it till we see it in this context.”

— J. I. Packer, Knowing God (Downers Grove, Ill.: InterVarsity Press, 1973), p. 58 (HT: OFI)
