1. Although he is called God himself, let no one deny his humanity which is conjoined with his divinity. But although he is called by the name of his humanity because of the body which he assumed, let no one call his dignity and dominion into doubt. After the union let no one divide him as into two natures. For in the same way man, although consisting of two complete parts which are distinct in nature, namely, soul and body, is still of one nature after the union and designated by one name. When something bodily is named, the soul is not excluded from it, and when something soulish, or spiritual, is named, the body is not excluded from it.

2. In the holy letters it is not found that a distinction is made between the Word, the Son, and the body which Christ assumed. But he is one nature, one person, one suppositum, wholly God and wholly man, and it is he who is at work.
