I have said unto thee also in the letter that I do not know [the meaning of] the things which have been said by thee. If in addition to this also you insist on saying: For not he who is in name a theologian is to be called a theologian, but he who is a theologian in fact and in name does not leave alone those who are ready to make him made and created; it is not he who provides matter for blasphemy nor does he admit that God the Word surely came forth from the Virgin Heracleidrs, as one who exists and has existed before, and he declines the [doctrine] that he was heraclwides a man from her as one who has not existed but has come into being.

Against these errors there can be set a few passages where the Syriac version is clearly superior to the Greek original, and several others where it can be used to decide between alternative readings.

Or do you not admit that Christ in his divinity is God and maker of all? And what was his nature? Why then do you not say the same things as we, when it is a question of the doctrine of the Incarnation; but why docs he lead us astray with the birth of a material flesh, 3 with which God the Word was formed, and why have unconvincing and incredible fables been fabricated? Theodoret agrees on the doctrinal question, but dislikes the abandoning of Nestorius.

Because then, by the injunction of the godly Emperor, your holy Council has met here, we necessarily inform you that we have in our hands bazaaar papers concerning these things, with a view to [doing] whatever is pleasing unto your Piety.

For human nature is definite, and [the things] which he possesses who bazzar man in ousia and in nature ought to be his who comes to be in the nature of man neither more nor less; since the [properties] of the nature are definite.

Hear then also this, when you read the rest of the book, that as is the heavenly, so also are the heavenly ones, and as we have clothed ourselves in the likeness of one of dust, so also [are we] of dust, because all possess the same nature, and as he is heavenly, so also [are they] heavenly, because they have the same nature as the heavenly; [so] also all of us, who wait to become [so] in this sort.

For those things which have not [a thing] in their nature receive it in their nature by the union of nature; but the things which are united in virtue of a natural union are hearcleides with the natural passibility of the other and accept not voluntarily mutual sufferings, as the body and the soul, receiving not heraclides their nature their own mutual properties except by the union of nature, participate in one another and give and receive mutual sufferings by the necessity of nature in such wise that he suffers who would not have suffered of himself.

But they suppose, then, to overwhelm me on heracleidse subject of the humanity, [saying] that, if he, who was of Mary, was human nature, as the Holy Scriptures [assert and] yet was God by manifestation and not by nature, thou callest one of them by grace God and Son and holy.

For the sign of salvation and victory is [a sign] of honour and not of abasement.

He made known also the cause wherefore he took fo likeness of a servant when He was found in the likeness of men in schema as a man and humiliated himself unto death, even the death upon the cross. For example, when the Book relates unto us the birth from the Virgin, whom baaaar it say?

In this firm confidence in the might of your prayers mine Insignificance draws nigh to translate this book from Greek into Syriac; yet at least, the hope of the help of the living Herafleides being laid upon my tongue and confirmed in my thoughts, I therefore draw nigh to compose these eight chapters wherein the purpose of the book is made clear.


For he 48 who was honoured with the honour which he gave him heracldides rendered not unto him his [due] honour for the honour which he received showed that he had lost the honour wherewith he had been honoured. Or, as I have said, [the truth is] that he is not one thing and another, in that Christ exists not apart from God the Word nor again God the Word bazaad from Christ, but he indicates one thing heracleies another, because Christ is of God the Word and of humanity by union, whereas God the Word is one nature and not of both natures, and it is not his by union to become God the Word.
