One Response to How Can Jesus Be Both God and Human?

  1. Not a bad statement here! However, it should be noted that “hypostatic union”: The union of the divine and human natures in the Person of Jesus Christ, was the doctrine elaborated by Cyril of Alexandria, and incorporated in the Definition of Chalcedon. I like myself, the EO or Orthodox statement: “He being one Son, dual in nature, not dual in Person. Wherefore, we do confess, preaching the truth that Christ our God is perfect God and perfect Man.” (Troparion of the Resurrection)
