DOCTRINE OF THE HYPOSTATIC UNION AND KENOSIS I. Definition of terms. A. Hypostatic is a term taken from the Greek noun u`po,stasij- HUPOSTASIS which refers to the essential or basic nature of an entity. When used of Christ, the noun signifies the union of His two natures, the.

Chapter 4 probes how, through his theology of the hypostatic union, Aquinas presents Christ’s humanity as united to the divine nature specifically in the person of the Word, according to the Word’s personal property, so that his humanity becomes the created effect in which the Son’s eternal procession is made present in a new way and is manifested in the world.   To start, there is a popular illustration concerning the constitution of the Lord Jesus that He is two hundred percent. However, claiming that He is two hundred percent is not explicitly worded as such in mathematical terms in the Bible, so such an illustration must be qualified and explained through the lens of the hypostatic union. Hypostatic union is how Christians explain the relationship between Jesus’ divine nature, his human nature, and his being. It means that Jesus is both fully God and fully man. Jesus has all of the characteristics that are true of a person, and all of the characteristics that are true of a divine being. Both natures fully exist in one person.   In order for the union of the divine nature and human nature (without mixture or commingling) in the divine person of Christ to occur, the Word was made flesh. God therefore predestined that Christ would be born of a human mother. Hence, Mary is part of the Order of the Hypostatic Union in a special way. However, this was not enough.

The hypostatic union is the complete unique person of Christ. Therefore, the Lord Jesus Christ is the unique theanthropic person of the universe as Lewis Sperry Chafer declared (Systemic Theology, volume 3, chapter 2, The Person of the Savior). He is different from the other members of . Monothelitism, or monotheletism (from Greek μονοθελητισμός "doctrine of one will"), is the view that Jesus Christ has two natures but only one doctrine is contrary to dyothelitism, the Christological doctrine that Jesus Christ has two wills (human and divine), which correspond to his two natures.. Monothelitism is a development of the Neo-Chalcedonian position in the.   Comments Off on Christology What Is the Hypostatic Union? One of the core teachings about the person of Jesus is traditionally called the hypostatic union. This term developed in the early Church, whereby the word “hypostatic” was used officially at the Council of Chalcedon as a way to express the union of Jesus’ two natures.   The hypostatic union, therefore, is the technical term for the unipersonality of Christ, whereby in the incarnation the Son of God was constituted a complex person with both a human and a divine nature. For a concise and careful definition of the hypostatic union, the Chalcedonian Definition (AD ) is still unsurpassed.
