John 20:17 --17 Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”
I am kind of confused by this quote by our Lord. What did he mean by "My God". Was he saying this referring to his human nature because i know he says this word a couple of times in the scriptures? What does the Orthodox Church teach about this?
