Athanasius (c296 -373) -

The Holy and Inspired Scriptures are sufficient of themselves for the preaching of the Truth.-Athanasius, Contra Gentiles, I:1

If He did not rise, but is still dead, how is it that He routs and persecutes and overthrows the false gods, whom unbelievers think to be alive, and the evil spirits whom they worship? For where Christ is named, idolatry is destroyed and the fraud of evil spirits is exposed; indeed, no such spirit can endure that Name, but takes to flight on sound of it. This is the work of One Who lives, not of one dead; and, more than that, it is the work of God.
Athanasius, On the Incarnation
