of one essence with the Father

If, essence means nature, and Christ have a composited nature, which contain perfect humanity and divinity, does this means the Father also have humanity?

Thanks for all the responses.

There are three persons in the Trinity, but only one was incarnate and became Man, that is God the Son. When we say of Christ is of one essence with The Father, we are referring to their shared Divinity.

I hope this helps.

Does this means his divinity and humanity are separated?

No.
According to clock time and calendar time the approval of threads may seem to be long delayed, but in sacred time it is always near at hand, always imminent.
