” That is the case, of course, if, as has been said, the union was a true one and not, as they say, according to that in the saints. We say that it is not possible o speak of a true union after the birth, but we know Christ not as a man united to God, but as God assuming the human realities, ie. the body and the soul and the mind, and as God perfectly united in the holy Virgin without sin. Therefore, if you hear Christ called a man, do not forget that he has become God as well. Blessed Paul perceived this and preached him sometimes as from the seed of David, sometimes as God, “for remember Jesus Christ, who has been raised from the dead and is from the seed of David” (2 Tim. 2:8). And again, “God raised the Lord and will also raise us through his power”
(1 Cor. 6:14). Do you hear how the one, who is from the seed of David and has been raised from the dead, is preached so clearly? “
