At a staff team day away yesterday, we mused over what Newman meant by this verse in the classic “Praise to the Holiest in the Height”
O generous love! that he who smote
in Man for man the foe,
the double agony in Man
for man should undergo.
What is the “double agony”? Is it
- The Father losing the first Adam and then the second Adam?
- Jesus suffering both a gruesome physical death and also the effect of all the elect’s sin?
- Something else?
