The preexistence of the Savior
"Consider how he who was not yet born could have a people, unless he were in being before he was born. The prophet says this in his person, 'From my mother's womb he gave me my name,' because the angel foretold that he would be called Jesus. Again, concerning the plots of Herod, he says, 'He ... concealed me in the shadow of his arm.'"
St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lectures 10:12
