I already searched in case my question has been questioned. But I cannot find it.
From this link I read :
What does incarnate mean? How was Jesus God incarnate?
The Latin verb incarnare meant “to make flesh.” When we say that Jesus Christ is God “Incarnate,” we mean that the Son of God took on a fleshly, bodily form (John 1:14).
However, when this happened in the womb of Mary, Jesus’ earthly mother, He did not stop being deity. Although Jesus became fully human (Hebrews 2:17), He retained His status as God (John 1:1, 14).
How Jesus is able to be both man and God simultaneously is one of the great mysteries of Christianity
To me, I don't find that "The Logos is able to be both man and God simultaneously" is a mystery at all. Here is why :
- The Logos is God, eternal, infinite.
- The Logos took on a fleshly, bodily form
- However, when this happened in the womb of Mary, The incarnated-Logos earthly mother, The Logos did not stop being God.
- So there are two existencies of one Person (The Logos), The Logos who still as fully God (without a form) and The incarnated-Logos as a fully human being inside the womb of Mary.
To me, it's not a mystery because the Logos as God (without a form) is omnipotent. So, even if (for example) I add another Logos existency in a form of Theophany who appear somewhere in Timbuktu while at the same time the same Person as a human being (incarnated) inside the womb of Mary ... to me it's not impossible.
Because the article said that "How The Logos is able to be both man and God simultaneously is one of the great mysteries of Christianity", then it seems my four-points-opinion above is not correct.
So my question is:
In what way is the "great mystery" of it in the point of view of Christianity ?
whenever I read "Jesus" name in the article above, my mind "shift" to the eternal Logos, not to the incarnated-Logos inside Mary's womb.
