Christ's knowledge
« on: June 01, 2009, 08:53:19 PM »
I was just reading about the Agnoetae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agnoetae, http://orthodoxwiki.org/Agnoetai), who were condemned by Patriarch Eulogius of Alexandria, whose condemnation was also ratified by Pope Gregory the Great. This reality got me thinking about the topic. What is the Orthodox understanding of knowledge in the Incarnate Word? Is there only one type and level of knowledge within Him, that being the infinite divine knowledge? Or is there, on a certain level, two degrees and types of knowledge in Him, the knowledge He finds in His human nature being distinct from that which he finds in His divine nature? Is it possible that Christ knows all in His divine nature but in a paradoxical fashion also experiences ignorance in His human nature?

you might want to write some admin and have them delete one of these threads. Duplicate thread posting is a big no-no.

They are on two different forums, though...

I was intending to have one thread be directed towards those of an EO bias and another directed towards those of an OO bias.

yeah, they don't like it when you cross post the same thing. It is against one of the forum rules.

Would it be more appropriate to simply have the thread on this forum and directed towards both EO and OO?

Let us see if we can peaceably discuss this is the thread with the exact same title in the OO Forum .

I'm locking this thread to facilitate the discussion on the other thread, which already has had a thoughtful post provided.
