Posted on 08/07/2014 9:33:24 AM PDT by Salvation
Featured Term (selected at random:
Literally "God human," referring to those actions of Christ in which he used the human nature as an instrument of his divinity. such as were the miracles of Christ. Other human activities of Christ, such as walking, eating, and speaking, are also theandric, but in a wider sense, inasmuch as they are human acts of a divine person. The purely divine acts, such as creation, are not called theandric.
