< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We must now consider the assumption of the parts of human nature; and under this head there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the Son of God ought to have assumed a true body?

A[2] Whether He ought to have assumed an earthly body, i. e. one of flesh and blood?

A[3] Whether He ought to have assumed a soul?

A[4] Whether He ought to have assumed an intellect?
