Hypostatic union


#1

Is it possible to say that God experienced human suffering and death, when Christ suffered in His human nature for us.


#2

Yes it is.


#3

Absolutely - Jesus certainly didn’t cease being the Second Person of the Trinity during those times.

Hi Henry,

There are two natures and one person in Christ. That person is divine. But God suffered in His humanity,not in His divinity. Today, he suffers neither in His divinity, nor in his humanity.
