Union, Hypostatical

Union, Hypostatical, is a theological term devised by the old divines to express the union of the human nature of Christ with the divine in one person. It must be observed that this union is not consubstantial, as of the three persons in one Godhead; nor physical, as soul and body united in one person; nor mystical, as between Christ and believers; but so that the manhood subsists in the second person, yet without making confusion, both forming but one person. SEE ARIANISM; SEE HYPOSTATICAL UNION; SEE PERSON OF CHRIST; SEE SABELLIANS.
