"Therefore the Unmingled is mingled; and not only is God mingled with birth and Spirit with flesh, and the Eternal with time, and the Uncircumscribed with measure; but also Generation with Virginity, and dishonour with Him who is higher than all honour; He who is impassible with Suffering,
and the Immortal with the corruptible." - Gregory the Theologian, Oration 39.13
"For in reality, as the Scripture says, the shepherds became brutish, and many shepherds destroyed My vineyard, and defiled my pleasant portion, I mean the Church of God, which has been gathered together by the sweat and blood of many toilers and victims both before and after Christ, aye, even the great sufferings of God for us
." - Gregory the Theologian, Oration 21.24
In these two passages, does Gregory mean to speak of the person
of Jesus Christ, as God-man, when he attributes suffering to God? I just want to make sure I understand, he is not talking about either nature
of Christ, but is talking about the person
? Do I have that correct?
