OO definition of "nature"
« on: June 22, 2008, 03:09:28 PM »
I've taken in for granted that no action can really be predicated of a nature, but only persons.  Therefore, God the Logos suffered and died.  Neither His divinity nor His humanity died because these are His natures, that which is common to the divine Persons and all human persons.

Please explain what the "one nature" of Christ is, or correct me if I've already erred.

Please, no debate.

I'm not a theologian, but I think you pretty much have it.  When we say "one" nature, we don't mean a numerical "one," but rather a composite "one."  You may want to look through earlier threads dealing with Chalcedon which explain this more fully.  Click on the Chalcedon tag below.
