Mary, the Mother of God. Where do we get that? “How could Mary be God’s mother?”, we often hear.
“Mary is only the Mother of Jesus the human!”?
Our mothers are not the mothers of our nature, they are the mothers of US – the PERSONS.
No, Mary is not the Mother of Jesus’ NATURE – She is the Mother of Jesus the PERSON.
Jesus is ONE PERSON with two natures – human and Divine.
AND THE PERSON OF JESUS IS GOD.
The phrase Mother of God is not in Scripture, but…“Not so fast,” say many of our Protestant friendsSo how is kurios is being used in regard to ChristThe parallels are unmistakable. Elizabeth and the Gospel author (plus the unborn John the Baptist!), inspired by the Holy Spirit, recognize that Mary is the Ark of the New Covenant and bearer of the fulfillment of all that the old ark contained: not a mere man but divinity in the flesh, alive within her. She is the Mother of God.
