34. 5. THE FULL UNION OF THE DIVINE AND THE HUMAN IN THE LORD WAS EFFECTED BY THE PASSION OF THE CROSS, WHICH WAS THE LAST OF THE TEMPTATIONS. This was confirmed above in its proper chapter, where it was shown that the Lord came into the world to subjugate the hells and glorify His Human, and that the passion of the cross was the last combat by which He fully conquered the hells and fully glorified His Human. Now, since the Lord by the passion of the cross fully glorified His Human, that is, united it to His Divine and so made His Human also Divine, it follows that He is Jehovah and God as to both.  Therefore, in many passages in the Word He is called Jehovah, God, and the Holy One of Israel, the Redeemer, Saviour and Maker; as in the following:
Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. Luke i 46, 47.
The angel said unto the shepherds ... Behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people;

Thus saith Jehovah the Redeemer of Israel, his Holy One ... kings shall see and come to a stand ... because of Jehovah, that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel, who hath chosen thee. Isa. xlix 7.
Surely God is in thee, and there is none other God besides. Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel the Saviour. Isa. xlv 14, 15.
Thus saith Jehovah the King of Israel, and his Redeemer Jehovah Zebaoth . . . besides me there is no God. Isa. xliv 6.
I am Jehovah; and besides me there is no Saviour. Isa. xliii 11.

I am Jehovah thy God . . . and thou shalt know no God but me; for there is no Saviour besides me. Hosea xiii 4.
Am not I Jehovah? and there is no God else besides me; a just God and a Saviour there is none besides me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is none else. Isa. xlv 21, 22.
Jehovah Zebaoth is His name, and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall He be called. Isa. liv 5.
 From these passages it may be seen that the Lord's Divine, which is called the Father and here Jehovah and God, and the Divine Human, which is called the Son and here the Redeemer and Saviour, and also the Maker, that is, the Reformer and Regenerator, are not two, but one. For not only is mention made of Jehovah, God, and the holy One of Israel, the Redeemer and Saviour, but it is also said that Jehovah is the Redeemer and Saviour; indeed it is also said that Jehovah is the Saviour and that there is none besides Him. From this it is clearly manifest that the Divine and the Human in the Lord are one Person, and that the Human also is Divine; for the Redeemer and Saviour of the world is none other than the Lord as to the Divine Human, which is called the Son. Moreover, redemption and salvation constitute the attribute proper to His Human, which is called merit and righteousness; for it was that endured temptations and the passion of the cross; and thus by His Human He redeemed and saved mankind.
 Now, since after the union of the Human with the Divine in Himself, which was like that of the soul and the body with man, they were no longer two but one Person, according to the doctrine of the Christian world, therefore the Lord as to both is Jehovah and God. Thus mention is made sometimes of Jehovah and the Holy One of Israel the Redeemer and Saviour, and sometimes of Jehovah the Redeemer and Saviour; as may be seen from the passages quoted, where we read:
The Saviour Christ. Luke ii 10, 11; John iv 42.
God, and the God of Israel [are called] the Saviour and Redeemer. Luke i 47; Isa. xlv 15; liv 5; Ps. lxxviii 35.
Jehovah the Holy One of Israel, the Saviour and Redeemer. Isa. xli 14; xliii 3, 11, 14, 15; xlviii 17; xlix 7; liv 5.
Jehovah, the Saviour, Redeemer, and Maker. Isa. xliv 6; xlvii 4; xlix 26; liv 5, 8 lxiii 16; Jer. 1 34; Ps. xix 14; Ps. cxxx 7, 8; 2 Sam. xxii 2, 3.
Jehovah God the Redeemer and Saviour, and besides me there is no other. Isa. xliii 11; xliv 6; xlv 14, 15, 21, 22; Hosea xiii 4.
