This week’s term: Incarnation of Christ – The truth that in becoming Jesus of Nazareth, God the Son partook of flesh and blood, in such a way that He suffered in every way in which the flesh is capable of suffering.

Last 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.
