Quotes to Consider:

Herman Hoeksema: "[Christ] must be a man, for only in the human nature will God punish the sin man committed. He must be very man, flesh of our flesh, blood of our blood, living our human life, and entering into our human experience. He must be able to bring the sacrifice of his life and enter into all the suffering of death willingly, and make of death an act of love. He must, therefore, not be a sinner, but a perfectly righteous man. However ... a mere creature is not sufficient, for he must be able to deliver many, and his sacrifice must have infinite value" (Triple Knowledge, vol. 1, p. 258).
