We must now consider the union on the part of what was assumed.
About which we must consider first what things were assumed by the Word of God; secondly, what were co-assumed, whether perfections or defects.
Now the Son of God assumed human nature and its parts.
Hence a threefold consideration arises.
First, with regard to the nature; secondly, with regard to its parts; thirdly, with regard to the order of the assumption.
Under the first head there are six points of inquiry:
A Whether human nature was more capable of being assumed than any other nature?
A Whether He assumed a person?
A Whether He assumed a man?
A Whether it was becoming that He should assume human nature abstracted from all individuals?
A Whether it was becoming that He should assume human nature in all its individuals?
A Whether it was becoming that He should assume human nature in any man begotten of the stock of Adam?
