Could God Become Man? IN The Philosophy in Christianity
In . Cambridge University Press (1989)
Christian orthodoxy has maintained that in Jesus Christ God became man, i.e., acquired a human nature, while remaining God. Given two not unreasonable restrictions on the understanding of "man", that claim is perfectly coherent. But if the New Testament is correct in claiming that in some sense Christ was ignorant, weak, and temptable, we have to suppose that Christ has a divided mind; or, in traditional terminology, that the two natures did not totally interpenetrate.
