  • Going back to the subject of "will": > Nestorianism upholds Monotheletism even more clearly.

  • Church Fathers introduced the concept of hypostasis to describe the Holy Trinity and also to describe the Incarnation. It doesn't mean an "individual person" but rather a "mode of being" or an "individuated existence." It is similar to the latin "pe…

  • This is another useful video: http://islamexplained.com/UVG_0_ar/UVG_video_player_0_ar/TabId/89/VideoId/2089/270.aspx
  • This is a good video in Arabic about the Holy Trinity: http://islamexplained.com/UVG_0_ar/UVG_video_player_0_ar/TabId/89/VideoId/2086/269.aspx

  • Hi: > This last post is confusing. The Coptic church first off is not against Miaphysitism. It professes it. Metropolitan Bishoy of Damietta gave his own Coptic explanation of the "one will".  He saw no difference between the expression of "on…
