From Athanasius

“We know that ‘in the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God’, and we worship the Word who has become human for our salvation, not as if he has become equal to the body, but as Master taking on the form of a servant, and as the Creator and Maker coming in a creature so that, by granting freedom to all in himself, he might bring the world near to the Father, and make all things to be at peace, things in heaven and on earth.”

—Athanasius, Ad Adelphium 8 (ca. 370 CE).

I can never remember. Who mediates the two dialectical natures? Is it the one person? Or is the mediation the message?
