13 - unchecked Church History 13 Warren Smith Monday, October 6, 2008 428:  Sermon that is upheld by “John of Antioch”? 431:  Council of Ephesus 433- Formula of Reunion:  3 claims:   1. Affirms the language of Theotokos as an appropriate designation for Mary 2. Speaks of the incarnation as 2 natures, but condemns 2 subjects.  It’s OK to say divine  and human co-exist as long as you don’t speak of them as two subjects, like a schizo.  Nestorius is condemned. 3. The divine word is deemed impassable.  Another words, in Cyril’s hyptostatic union,  doesn’t make the divine nature alter in the union.  Christ suffers in his humanity, but that  doesn’t change the divine nature.   Preserves the idea that God is immutable.  God isn’t  lessened as a result of the incarnation. Language gives preference to Cyril’s language. 434 or 444?  Cyril dies.  Not everyone thinks that Cyril’s language is right. Eutokeys says it sounds like Nestorius’ position.  He says, Cyril is right – Christ is one.  So then,  that means that he has One Nature.  And this is called “monothesitism”  One-nature.  Essentially,  this means that for him the incarnation is this union of the divine and the human in a single  person so that the two really become one.  And they exist in such a way that Christ is really  unique.  Christ is divinized humanity. Cyril’s objection was that simply a conjunction of wills made Jesus not really any different from  the prophets. So to make him different from the prophets, Eutokeys says that there is only One Nature.  Old  allies of ___________ ralley to Eutokeys The Tome of Leo.  Bishop of Contantinoble.  He opposes Eutokeys.  He issues the formula:  Christ is two natures in one person.  This language is picked up and carried over into the  Chalcedonian formula.

Leo doesn’t understand the fundamental difference.  The West is getting really far from the East.  Greek isnt’ the language in which he’s doing theology. Flebian contemns Eutokeys.  The Archbishop, Theotekeys, comes to his defense.  The 2 nd  council of Ephesus is an even bigger fiasco than the first council of Epehsese.  It’s called the  Robber Council. Then, Chalcedon’s formula.  Jesus Christ is fully human and fully divine.  He is two natures in one  hypothesis.  Without confusion, without separation and without mixture.  What’s important is to  see how in each one of these negates certain forms of heresy.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
