" The history of Jesus is not the elaboration of something which took place,
but the expression of something which men passionately wished to [have] take[n] place:
the suffering and death of a god [so] that mankind might be saved.

" To say that Jesus was a god transformed into a man is to speak both for the
believer and the historian, each according to his manner. But to declare that
Jesus was a man made into a god is equally wrong both to the faithful and to
the historian."
