Theological Term of the Week: Hypostatical Union of Christ

theological-term-of-the-week

This week’s term: Hypostatical Union of Christ – Hypo (below) and static (substance). This deals with the inexplicable union of Jesus Christ’s two natures, which underlies the visible or tangible, in which the divine and human, (very God and very man) were fully united, yet not mixed together, being neither compoundable nor divisible. Nor was the one confused or in any way mitigated by the other. By this union He could act either as God or as man, without either nature violating the other.

Last week’s term: Humanity of Christ – The truth that Jesus Christ did not merely assume a human form by and in which He acted as and appeared to be man, but that He actually became man when He was born of Mary.

I pray the Lord can use this series to bless your theological study as it has mine.
