Tertullian quote

I am becoming a fool in the world
through believing the foolish things of God.

The Son of God was crucified:
there is no shame,
because it is shameful.

The Son of God died:
it is by all means to be believed,
because it is absurd.

And buried, He rose again:
it is certain,
because impossible.

Tertullian, 
3rd century theologian,
On the Flesh of Christ
