The Whole Enchilada

During today’s conversation on Back Porch Theology – the second in our “Wild About Jesus” series – we’re going to dive deep into the Christological doctrine concerning our Savior’s absolute deity and His perfect humanity, which is summed up in the term – hypostatic union. That fancy phrase dates all the way back to the Council of Chalcedon in 451 AD, where it was determined that the Son of God was of the exact same substance as God the Father, as well as being indisputably human simultaneously! That despite our Redeemer’s habit of hugging on lepers and hanging out with disreputable sinners so as to save them, His compassionate relationship with flawed humanity in no way meant Jesus was a lesser form or diluted derivative of Yaweh. Dr. J.I. Packer says it best: He took humanity without the loss of deity. This truism is a foundational wall of biblical orthodoxy, y’all so please grab a cup of coffee and your Bible – unless you’re driving or hand-painting quail eggs, of course – and come hang out on the porch with Ally, Dr. Howard and me!
