Deity. Therefore they are at a loss how to explain many passages in which he speaks of his depend-ence on God, and in which human qualities and actions are ascribed to him. " Who is the Redeemer of God's Elect ? " " The only Redeemer of God's elect is the Lord Jesus Christ, who being the eternal Son of God, became man, and so was and continued to be God and man, in two distinct natures and one person for-ever." Human nature consists of a human body and a human soul. These Christ possesses : " A true body and a reasonable soul." He is a man in all respects except sin. He is not, therefore, a human body without a finite human mind ; but with a human mind in a human body. He is properly called " the man Christ Jesus," as really a man as was John the Baptist, or the apostle Paul. Between the man Christ Jesus, at his birth, and one of the three persons of the Godhead there be-gan a personal union. Hence, as it is properlj^ said, " All things were made by Inm, and without him was not anything made that was made."
