"And we shall see how the devil tempted him to evil, but not with evil.
"First, He was hungry, and the devil said, Make bread of this stone.
"'Was he not to eat when it came in his way? And did not the bread come in his way, when his power met that which could be changed into it?'
"Regard that word 'changed.' The whole matter lies in that. Changed from what? From what God had made it. Changed into what? Into what he did not make it.
"Why changed? Because the Son was hungry, and the Father would not feed him with food convenient for him!
"The Father did not give him a stone when he asked for bread. It was Satan that brought the stone and told him to provide for himself. The Father said, That is a stone. The Son would not say, That is a loaf. No one creative fiat shall contradict another.
"The Father and the Son are of one mind. The Lord could hunger, could starve, but would not change into another thing what his Father had made one thing."
