The Culmination in the Cross (Continued)

From these Passages it may be seen that the Divine of the Lord (which is called “the Father,” and here “Jehovah” and “God”), and the Divine Human which is called “the Son,” and here “Redeemer and Saviour,” also “Former” (that is, Reformer and Regenerator), are not two, but one: and not only is it said, “Jehovah God and the Holy One of Israel, the Redeemer and Saviour,” but it is also said, “Jehovah the Redeemer and Saviour;” yea, it is said also, “I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no Saviour.” From which it is clearly manifest that the Divine and the Human in the Lord are one Person, and that the Human is also Divine; for the Redeemer and Saviour of the world is no other than the Lord as to the Divine Human, which is called “the Son:” for redemption and salvation constitute the proper attribute of his Human, which is called merit and justice; for his Human endureth temptations and the passion of the cross, and thus by the Human He redeemed and saved.

Now because, after the union of the Human with the Divine in Himself, which was like that of the soul and the body in man, there were no longer two, but one person, according to the doctrine of the Christian world: therefore the Lord as to both, is “Jehovah” and “God:” wherefore it is sometimes said, “Jehovah” and “the Holy One of Israel, the Redeemer and Saviour” and sometimes “ehovah the Redeemer and Saviour” as may be seen from the passges quoted. It is there said,

“The Saviour Christ” (Luke 2:10, 11; John 4:42)

“God, and the God of Israel, the Saviour and Redeemer” (Luke 1:47; Isaiah 45:15; 54:5; Psalm 128:35)

“Jehovah and the Holy One of Israel, the Saviour and Redeemer” (Isaiah 41:14; 43:3, 11, 14, 15; 48:17; 44:7; 54:5)

“Jehovah, the Saviour, Redeemer and Reformer” (Isaiah 44:6; 47:4; 49:26; 54:8; 63:16; Jeremiah 1:34; Psalm 19:14; 130:7, 8; 2 Samuel 22:2, 3)

“Jehovah God, the Redeemer and Saviour, and besides me there is no other” (Isaiah 43:11; 44:6; 45:14, 15, 21, 22; Hosea 13:4)
