The Two Natures in Christ "The True Mode of the Communication of the Majesty"--Martin Chemnitz

"He wished to take our assumed nature into communion with His divine activities, particularly as an instrument in the work of the Messiah, so that He might give to us in His person a definite pledge that our nature will be blessed, and that we may know that we have access to these works and have fellowship in them and in the benefits of the Son of God, our King, Priest, and Head. In order to accomplish this and to make us partakers in His works and benefits, He added His assumed nature to our nature, He became of the same substance with us, He became our kinsman, our very brother, flesh of our flesh; and no one hates his own flesh, but nourishes and cares for it, as the Lord does for His church." (Eph. 5:29)
