The baby lay in the manger unconscious and inac­tive. Yet the eternal Logos was personally united with this infant. There was a God-man in the manger as truly as there was upon the cross.

While growing up from being Mary and Josephs Baby to a young Man Jesus began learning about His Fathers business, being a Carpenter’s Son. Until a few years later learning to build and repair Cabinets, Dressers, and Tables. A few years later Jesus Christ began Preaching in the Temple.

Though beginning in time, the thean­thropic personality of the Redeemer con­tinues forever. This is taught in Rom. 9:5, “Of whom as concerning the flesh years later Jesus Christ came, who is over all God blessed forever:” in Col. 2:9, “In him dwelleth [now and forever] all the fulness of the Godhead, bodily;” in Heb. 13:8, “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, to-day and forever:” in Eph. 2:6, “Believers sit together in heav­enly places in Christ Jesus:” in Heb. 4:14, 15, “We have a great high priest who hath passed into the heavens.”

The incarnation makes no change in the constitution of the Trinity. It leaves in the Godhead, as it finds in it, only three per­sons. For the addition of a human nature to the person of the Logos, is not the addition of another person to him. The second trini­tarian person, though so much modified by the incarnation as to become a God-man, is not so much modified as to lose his proper trinitarian personality, because in­carnation is not the juxtaposition of a hu­man person with a divine person, but the assumption of a human nature to a divine person.

He thinks like God, and he thinks like a man. He has the eternal, all-comprehending, and successions consciousness of God; and he has the imperfect, gradual, and sequacious consciousness of man. In this way, the trini­tarian relations of the second person re­main unchanged by his incarnation. The divine nature, though it condescends to exist and act in and through a human soul and body, and to be trammelled by it, at the same time is existing and acting in an untrammeled manner throughout the uni­verse of finite being, and in the immensity of the Godhead.

The person of the Son of God, in his assuming human nature to be his own, did not take an individual person of anyone into a near conjunction with himself, but pre­venting the personal subsistence of human nature in that flesh which he assumed, he gave it its subsistence (i.e. its personality) in his own person, whence it hath its in­dividuation and distinction from all other persons whatever. how does Christ Love the Church, forgivingly, graciously, mercifully, consistently, and unwaveringly. picture
