Hypostatic union (from the Greek: ὑπόστασις hypóstasis, sediment, foundation, substance, or subsistence) is a technical term in Christian theology employed in mainstream Christology to describe the union of Christ's humanity and divinity in one hypostasis.[3]
The First Council of Ephesus recognised this doctrine and affirmed its importance, stating that the humanity and divinity of Christ are made one according to nature and hypostasis in the Logos.

Main article: Hypostasis (philosophy)
Hypostasis had come into use as a technical term prior to the Christological debates of the late fourth and fifth centuries. Before there were Christians, the word was used in Greek philosophy, primarily in Stoicism.[4][5] Hypostasis had some use in the New Testament that reflect the later, technical understanding of the word; especially Hebrews 1:3. Although it can be rendered literally as "substance" this has been a cause of some confusion[6] so it is now often translated "subsistence". It denotes an actual, concrete existence, in contrast with abstract categories such as Platonic ideals.
Through history[edit] A series of articles on

| * Christ * Son of God • God the Son * Logos • Incarnation * Pre-existence of Christ * Person of Christ * Hypostatic union * Love of Christ * Imitation of Christ * Knowledge of Christ * Intercession of Christ * Perfection of Christ * Threefold office |
Apollinaris of Laodicea was the first to use the term hypostasis in trying to understand the Incarnation.[7] Apollinaris described the union of the divine and human in Christ as being of a single nature and having a single essence - a single hypostasis.
In the 5th century, a dispute arose between Cyril of Alexandria and Nestorius in which Nestorius claimed that the term theotokos could not be used to describe Mary, the mother of Christ. Nestorius argued for two distinct natures of Christ, believing that God could not be born. Therefore Nestorius believed that the man Jesus was born and then assumed the divine nature after birth. The First Council of Ephesus labeled Nestorius as a neo-adoptionist and deposed him. In his letter to Nestorius, Cyril used the term hypostatic (Greek, kath' hypostasis) to refer to Christ's divine and human natures being one, saying, "“We must follow these words and teachings, keeping in mind what ‘having been made flesh’ means …. We say … that the Word, by having united to himself hypostatically flesh animated by a rational soul, inexplicably and incomprehensibly became man.”[8]
The Nestorian Theodore of Mopsuestia went in the other direction, arguing that in Christ there were two natures (dyophysite) (human and divine) and two hypostases (in the sense of "essence" or "person") that co-existed.[9] However in Theodore's time the word hypostasis could be used in a sense synonymous with ousia (which clearly means "essence" rather than "person") as it had been used by Origen and Tatian.
The Chalcedonian Definition agreed with Theodore that there were two natures in the Incarnation. However, the Council of Chalcedon also insisted that hypostasis be used as it was in the Trinitarian definition: to indicate the person and not the nature as with Apollinarius.
Thus, the Council declared that in Christ there are two natures; each retaining its own properties, and together united in one subsistence and in one single person (εἰς ἓν πρόσωπον καὶ μίαν ὑπόστασιν, eis hèn prósōpon kaì mían hypóstasin).[10]
As the precise nature of this union is held to defy finite human comprehension, the hypostatic union is also referred to by the alternative term "mystical union."
The Oriental Orthodox Churches, having rejected the Chalcedonian Creed, were known as Monophysites because they would only accept a definition that characterized the incarnate Son as having one nature. The Chalcedonian "in two natures" formula (based, at least partially, on Colossians 2:9) was seen as derived from and akin to a Nestorian Christology.[11] Contrariwise, the Chalcedonians saw the Oriental Orthodox as tending towards EutychianMonophysitism. However, the Oriental Orthodox have in modern ecumenical dialogue specified that they have never believed in the doctrines of Eutyches, that they have always affirmed that Christ's humanity is consubstantial with our own, and they thus prefer the term Miaphysite to refer to themselves, a reference to Cyrillian Christology, which used the phrase "μία φύσις τοῦ θεοῦ λόγου σεσαρκωμένη", "mía phýsis toû theoû lógou sesarkōménē". The term miaphysismeans one united nature as opposed to one singular nature (monophysis). Thus the Miaphysite position maintains that although the nature of Christ is from two, it may be referred to as one in its incarnate state because the natures always act in unity.
In recent times, leaders from the Eastern Orthodox and Oriental Orthodox Churches have signed joint statements in an attempt to work towards reunification. Likewise the leaders of the Assyrian Church of the East, which venerates Nestorius and Theodore, have in recent times signed a joint agreement with leaders of the Roman Catholic Church acknowledging that their historical differences were over terminology rather than the actual intended meaning.

Sondheim's a Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

...Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum When I think of musical comedy, Stephen Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is the first show that comes to mind. Just three years ago, I had never heard of Forum before, until my high school choir director announced that it would be our 2008 musical. I was hesitant to audition at first, not knowing the plot or what I was getting myself into, but now I can honestly say that it was my favorite musical production ever to be a part of. Forum, a musical farce written in two acts and Sondheim’s first work on Broadway both as composer and lyricist, is “a non-stop laugh-fest in which a crafty slave (Pseudolus) struggles to win the hand of a beautiful but slow-witted courtesan (Philia) for his young master (Hero), in exchange for freedom” (MTI 1). In Sondheim’s own words, “there’s not a wasted moment in Forum, and the truth and the test of it is that the play is just as funny when performed by a group of high school students as it is when it is performed on Broadway. It is never not funny. The reason is, it is based on situations so solid that you cannot not laugh” (Gordon 25). A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum is a collaboration between American librettist Burt Shevelove, playwright Larry Gelbart, and musical theater extraordinaire, Stephen Sondheim. Originally, Shevelove had done a version of a Roman comedy in college and thought that a professional Broadway production would be......

Some people don’t understand how much difference a good education makes. It opens your eyes to a wider world. It helps you understand things you never understood before. It gives you opportunities for a better life that you would never have had without the education. But education isn’t enough how many PhD degree you get , your heart I till no different than anyone else’s. We’re all still basically selfish, out for what we can get, focused on taking care of just us, and making the best life for ourselves we can. The reason why education doesn’t solve everything is because we have a heart problem, not a head problem. I can have all the education I want, but if my heart is not a good, one I will never be successful in life. So get another degree. Fill your head with more knowledge, but remember to also fill your heart. My major is Business Administration and I dream of having my own business one day, a business where I can make other people feel better about them self, make them feel like they are in place where at that moment nothing matters but their happiness, where problems and worries are outside not inside.

Innocence Lost

...will this affect my family, and will I change? Who would do this to a fourteen year old girl, I thought to myself, still lying in the ditch trying to wrap my mind around the situation. Then that’s when I told myself, “Shena, you have to get up and you have to muster up enough strength to run and run until you can find help.” I slowly tried to get up; however, every time I did I felt pain from every angle of my body. This only reminded me of the horrible things that just happened to me. I keep replaying this incident in my mind, him pushing me from behind as I was walking my bike down the steep hill. He then drugged me into the ditch behind the school, near the playground. I could hear myself scuffling, screaming and pleading for help, while he is telling me, “to shut up or I will kill you.” At that point I felt like I had to fight for my life. Therefore, I fought hard slapping him, punching him, kicking him, and biting him. I did everything I could to get him to stop and to leave me alone, but nothing worked. The next thing I knew, I felt pain between my legs from him pushing deeper inside of me and that is when I realized I was being violated. I fought some more trying my best to break free, but all this did was make him mad and it just got worse. I could feel nothing but pain from this point on. I felt pain through my whole body. From every hit, push, and thrust I could smell nothing but his sweat and my blood. I started to cry, thinking if I cried harder he would...

I didn’t believe what the others were saying. I believed in what I believed in. I went up to Mishra. I wanted to give it a try and I wanted Mishra to feel that she was still getting costumers. Mishra had a different way of telling people their future. She used cards, not by hand or any other things. She would pick ten cards out of twenty and I would pick five out of the ten. Those five cards I picked would be telling my future. She laid out the cards one by one as she was laying them one by one, the first card was an Ace with a gun, second card was a king which had a baby on it, third card was a queen which has bad guys killing a woman, the fourth one was a jack which had a broken heart and the last one was a ten which had death. I was really shocked with the result but then again I didn’t believe it. I was really skeptical about a lot of things. As I left, Mishra ran to me because I left my phone. While I was driving I couldn’t stop thinking what Mishra showed me. I was feeling very nervous and I didn’t feel good. As soon as I got home I had a hot shower and went to bed.

...have to stay active and involved. That means they need to have and interest in life and spend time with family and friends. The other thing individuals could be is disengage, meaning they will withdraw themselves from activates and people, which means less interaction with family and friends and mostly staying inside. When Nicki gets older in age, there is a chance that she might disengage from activities and people. It’s possible that Nicki could just lose interest in activities and being around people for example family and friends, meaning she would spend less time with them. This wouldn’t be surprising as Nicki is only human like everyone else, which means that she goes through the life stages and development like everyone. Another reason why Nicki could become disengage is if she develops an illness that is really bad causing her to isolate herself from everything and everyone, as it probably would be too difficult for her to cope with. This is because as you get older up age you prefer to be more independent and hide things that may cause emotional problems for family and friends. Another reason for Nicki to disengage is if a life changing event was to happen in her life, this would cause her to distant herself from people, activities and the outside world, especially if what happened was too painful. If the life event that happened involved family or friends, then Nicki would need to spend most of her time with them, meaning that reducing social activities and......

I think that the interaction that Laura had with Jim was very positive. It was a collection of conversation and interactions that addressed her biggest fears. Starting with the fact that the friend that Tom brings home, just happens to be the one boy that Amanda has ever had an interest in. Someone who meant a lot to her, so much that all these years later, she still keeps the program from the play he was in, tucked safely in her yearbook, that she keeps close by. The interaction with him, although at first is too much for her deal with at first, as apparent with her fainting, is the best thing that has ever happened to her. As the conversation between them goes on, he addresses her disappointment in not finishing school, and he then confesses that he wished he could be further along in his career. He goes on through the entire scene address each of her so called flaws and turning them into no big deal, hardly noticeable things, instead of the huge stumbling blocks she feels them to be. I think this helps her to see that everyone is not always as perfect and put together as she makes them out to be. I think this boost in self-confidence may have been all she needed to try to get out there and try to return to school or...

But everything went back to normal in an hour, the crowd broke up, and all walked away, dazed still wondering what it was.

Rose for Emily

...deeply from her father, a strict and selfish man, so that she could not decide anything. This is one of the main reasons that direct Emily to an odd personality in her life. During her childhood, she was isolated from society and had a very limit connection with other people. She totally depended on her father, Mr. Griersons, and became a copy of that man. For example, he refused to pay taxes when he was alive, and then after he died, ten years later, she also did the same way. She had no rights to choose what she wanted because of the selfish father who always controlled everything, “… we did not say she was crazy then. We believed she had to do that”. Perhaps Mr. Griersons loved Emily with all his heart and did not want anything wrong happened to her, so he accidently became a selfish father. He always tried to keep her in best conditions, but the more he did that, the more her mental sickness developed silently. Second, although Emily had a strong appearance, she was a weak woman inside as other women. When her father passed away, she did not accept the fact and tried to think that he had not died yet. She went against the female type and social behaviors at that time. She cut her hair short, “making her look like girl, with a vague resemblance to those angels in colored church windows sort of tragic and...

I forgot how the people talk and walk and stare. But being here again, it comes back in huge explosive waves. I feel sick. All I’ve been feeling lately is sick. I search for my locker. All the numbers are wrong, jumbled and unreadable. Asking would mean something is clearly wrong. I hold onto all my books, my backpack pressing hard on my shoulders. The bell rings and it is louder than I remember. I clench my teeth. The sounds resembles nails on a chalkboard, at least to me it does. Every day for two months I went to history class at this time in Mrs. Waters’ room. And now, I have no idea where it is. “Edith,” a girl’s voice says. I turn. “Yeah,” I say to Clara. Clara is the sweetest person on the planet. For the longest time I thought she was super fake because how can someone be that nice all the time. But she just is. “You have Waters still, right?” “Yeah,” I say. She loops her arm around mine. “I’m glad they didn’t change it.” “Me too,” but I don’t really care.

...of disability. Most importantly what happened to the first chapter of this book? Why does it start on chapter 2 and who killed the dog? I want answers to all these questions in order to figure out Christopher’s Identity. This book begins with a boy named Christopher stumbling across a dead dog with a pitchfork in it. Just from reading the first paragraph I could tell that the main character had something different about him. I was trying to understand why this book sounded like a 5th grader wrote it. The next passage with Sioban kind of answered my question as to why the writing is so poor. Sioban is Christopher’s best friend, and she was showing Christopher faces with emotions on them and having Chris tell her what it meant. Christopher was having a lot of difficulty interpreting the emotion Sioban was showing him. This made me believe that Christopher has Asperger Syndrome or something that makes it hard for him to understand body language and other forms of human interaction. The sad part is that I can’t really see a clear identity in Christopher. He doesn’t know how to communicate with people, and that is key to having an identity. He is very socially awkward and the reactions he has to certain things are Murphy 2 unpredictable. For example when the officer went to pick him up off the ground Christopher smacked him. He got arrested for assaulting an officer but didn’t seem to be all that concerned. Another incident that happened that shows he doesn’t know how to......
