The qnome diagram - judge - 08-04-2004

Paul, would it be possible for you to post a link to your world famous <!-- s:biggrin: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif" alt=":biggrin:" title="Big Grin" /><!-- s:biggrin: --> qnome diagram?
It would make it easy to explain to others if one could just link to the diagram. Maybe even a short expl. as well?

Hi Michael,

You wouldn't happen to be referring to this little diagram? <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

<center>[Image: qnoma.gif]</center>

The link is <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.peshitta.org/images/qnoma.gif">http://www.peshitta.org/images/qnoma.gif</a><!-- m -->

The following short explanations should help...I've even color-coordinated them with the diagram: <!-- sSmile --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/smile.gif" alt="Smile" title="Smile" /><!-- sSmile -->

Mar Bawai the Great Wrote:???A singular essence is called a ???qnoma???. It stands alone, one in number, that is, one as distinct from the many. A qnoma is invariable in its natural state and is bound to a species and nature, being one [numerically] among a number of like qnome. It is distinctive among its fellow qnome [only] by reason of any unique property or characteristic which it possesses in its ???parsopa???. With rational creatures this [uniqueness] may consist of various [external and internal] accidents, such as excellent or evil character, or knowledge or ignorance, and with irrational creatures [as also with the rational] the combination of various contrasting features. [Through the parsopa we distinguish that] Gabriel is not Michael, and Paul is not Peter. However, in each qnoma of any given nature the entire common nature is known, and intellectually one recognizes what that nature, which encompasses all its qnome, consists of. A qnoma does not encompass the nature as a whole [but exemplifies what is common to the nature, such as, in a human qnoma, body, soul, mind, etc.].???

Synodicon Orientale Wrote:???Concerning this, we believe in our hearts and confess with our lips one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, whose Godhead does not disappear, and whose manhood is not stolen away, but who is complete God and complete man. When we say of Christ ???complete God??? we are not naming the Trinity, but one of the qnome of the Trinity, God the Word. Again, when we call Christ ???complete man??? it is not all men we are naming, but the one qnoma which was specifically taken for our salvation into union with the Word.???

Shlama Akhay:
Oh, Thanks for the diagram. I had copied and saved somewhere but I forgot the location... I was wondering were I could find it and I was about to ask Paul to indicate were I could find it. It's very clear! So thanks (both of you) again!
