be at rest and know that He is God
“The same, true Son of God, Who was timelessly born before the Morning-star, now undergoes a second birth in time. What is the Morning-star?

Before the appearance of the stars, before the creation of the world, before the beginning of time itself, the Son was begotten timelessly, eternally, everlastingly from the womb of God the Father.”
