In the hypostatic union Jesus is fully human and divine. Is this to be understood as meaning that Jesus was fully human on earth while simultaneously being fully God with the Trinity in heaven? Consisting of one person, in two natures?

Yes

So, we should not think that the Word “left” heaven and became subject to the elements of space and time. Rather, the Word assumed human nature without altering His divinity in any matter whatsoever? So, when Jesus says he will raise himself up after the cricifixion he refers to his divine nature that is all-knowing, all-present, etc?

Do the two natures continue in heaven?

Yes. Jesus Christ remains true God and true man.

Hi B__,

You speak as if heaven was a place that God could “leave”. Heaven is a state where God sees God and we see God “face to face”. Once you’re in heaven, you cannot “leave” it.

Jesus is one person and that person is God. He is God on earth, he is God everywhere he goes.

Verbum

Absolutely. He never renounced his humanity when He ascended to heaven.
