Its Culmination in the Cross

That the Full union of the Divine and the Human was effected in Him by the Passion of the Cross, which was the last of the temptations, was shown in its chapter above. . .Now since the Lord, by the passion of the cross, fully glorified his Human, that is, united it to his Divines, and thus made his Human also Divine, it follows that He is Jehovah and God as to both. Wherefore, in many places in the Word, He is called “Jehovah,” “God,” and the “Holy One of Israel,” the “Redeemer,” “Saviour,” and “former;” as in the following:

“Mary said, My Soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit hath rejected in God my Saviour” (Luke 1:46-47).

“The angel said to the shepherds, Behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be unto all people–that there is born to–day, in the city of David, a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10-11).

“They said, This is truly the Christ, the Saviour of the world” (John 4:42)

“I help thee, saith Jehovah, and thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 41:14).

“Thus saith Jehovah, thy Creator, O Jacob, and thy Former, O Israel; for I have redeemed thee: . . . I am Jehovah, thy God; the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour” (Isaiah 43:1, 3).

“Thus saith Jehovah, your redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: . . . I am Jehovah, your Holy One; the Creator of Israel, your King” (Isaiah 43:14-15).

“Thus saith Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, and his Former [the Saviour]” (Isaiah 45: 11, 15).

“Thus saith Jehovah thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel” (Isaiah 48:17).

“That all flesh may know that I Jehovah am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, thy Mighty One of Jacob” (Isaiah 49:26).

“Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his redeemer, Jehovah of Hosts;. . .besides me there is no God” (Isaiah 44:6; 59:20; 60:16; 45:14-15, 21-22; 43:11; 45:21; 49:5, 7; 44:24; 54:8; 45: 21; 47:4; 54:5, 8; Psalm 19:14; 78:35; 130:7-8; 2 Samuel 22:2-3; Hosea 13:4).
