Amphilochius on Christ's Divinity and Humanity

Today's quote comes from Amphilochius of Iconium, a brief statement from whom is preserved in a patristic florilegium appended to the address to the emperor Marcian that Theodoret of Cyrrhus drafted on behalf of the Council of Chalcedon. Amphilochius remarked that Christ "did not become man through a declension of God, nor did he change from man to God through progression". As was agreed, progression from mere humanity to robust divinity is an impossibility.
