Question #53: What does it mean that Christ was/is a theanthropic person?
Answer: Etymology suggests that Christ is the God-man. Theanthropic comes from Theos (God) and anthropos (man). Each has its own nature. But the two natures go to make up the one person. “The two natures are distinct from each other although united in the one Person.”1
Pronouns such as I, Thou, and He are used to indicate just one person. He is not two persons dwelling in the one body. He is not God and man. He is the God-Man (one person) with two natures.2
