The Maternal and Paternal Human (Continued)

That the Human of the Lord was glorified, is evident from the things which are said concerning his glorification in the Evangelists, as from these; in John: “The hour has come that the Son of Man should be glorified. . . He said, Father, glorify they name. There came a voice from heaven, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again” (John 12:23, 28). Because the Lord was glorified by successive steps, it is therefore said, “I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.” (also John 13:31-32; 17:1, 5; Luke 24:26.)

These things are said concerning his Human. The Lord said, “God is glorified in Him; God will also glorify Him in Himself; and, “Glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify Thee.” The Lord said these things, because the union was reciprocal, of the Divine with the Human, and of the Human with the Divine; wherefore He had also said, “I am in the Father, and The Father in Me” (John 14:10-11); also, “All mine are thine, and ll thine are mine” (John 17:10). Thence the union was full. It is the same with all union; unless it be reciprocal, it is not full. Such, also, there must be, of the Lord with man, and of man with the Lord; as He teaches in John: “At that day ye shall know that . . . ye are in me, and I in you” (John 14:20); and elsewhere: “Abide in me, and I in you: . . . he that abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit” (John 15:4-5).
