4.1 Christology – the doctrine of Hypostatic Union (Part 1)

The New Testament attests that Jesus was indeed human. However, there are also other statements in the New Testament in which Jesus is portrayed as divine. How do these two sides—divinity and humanity—fit together? In the doctrine of the Trinity we learned how this is to be understood in reference to God, the Father. Christology explains the relationship between divinity and humanity in Jesus Christ, specifically in the doctrine of Hypostatic Union (the doctrine of the dual nature of Christ). Jesus Christ is still true Man and true God today, and it is as such that He will return.
