God Did NOT Die
#20
The Theology of the Church of the East has been stated briefly and clearly in the following ???Hymn of Praise (TESHBOKHTA)??? Composed by Mar Babai the Great in the sixth century A.D., a noted theologian of the Church

One is Christ the Son of God,
Worshiped by all in two natures;
In His Godhead begotten of the Father,
Without beginning before all time;
In His humanity born of Mary,
In the fullness of time, in a body united;
Neither His Godhead is of the nature of the mother,
Nor His humanity of the nature of the Father;
The natures are preserved in their Qnumas*,
In one person of one Sonship.
And as the Godhead is three substances in one nature,
Likewise the Sonship of the Son is in two natures, one person.
So the Holy Church has taught.

*Qnuma, is an Aramaic word. The nearest equivalent is the Greek ???hypostasis???, in Latin ???substantia??? and in English ???substance???.

I think that sums it up beautifully & perfectly.

I see that my view on the Godhead seems to be well inline with both that of the CoE & the Netzarim, so I'm sure I'm on the right track. I think that Isaiah 53 is one of the simplest and clearest explanations on what it means that "God died", it's the "arm of Yahweh" not Elohim in his fullness, so I stand by my view.
