In other words, Jesus has two distinct natures: divine and human. Jesus is the Word who was God and was with God and was made flesh (John , 14). This means that in the single person of Jesus he has both a human and divine nature, God and man. The divine nature was not changed when the Word became flesh (John , 14).

Because the penalty for sin requires suffering in body and soul. And only a human can do this (cf. Heb. ; John ).

In other words, Jesus is both God and man. We will look at each nature accordingly. Jesus reveals throughout the Gospel of John that He is the Messiah and God's Son in human form as He performs miracles and calls people to believe in His name. The book of John is unique among the Gospel accounts in terms of its style and literary design. John claims in the opening chapter that not only is Jesus the Messiah but he's also. Jesus Christ is both human and divine. We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one accord, teach people to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, at once complete in Godhead and complete in humanity, truly God and truly human, consisting of a rational soul and body; of one substance with the Father as regards his Godhead.
