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?
