Just one brief citation today from Tertullian (AD 160-225). This comes from his work, On Modesty (22).
Who has redeemed another’s death by his own, but the Son of God alone? For even in His very passion He set the robber free. For to this end had He come, that, being Himself pure from sin, and in all respects holy, He might undergo death on behalf of sinners.
