      In the early Christian movement there were those who believed
      in "Jesus as God", those who believed in "Jesus as Prophet," and
      those who believed in "Jesus as God and Man." There was much
      argument and debate over this issue, as to what was Jesus' true
      nature. Was Jesus mortal, was he God, or was Jesus God in flesh
      (the "living" Christ)? Islam and most Gnostics (even to this day)
      deny Jesus' divine nature, emphasizing instead his mortal role as
      teacher. Thankfully, the Church father's rejected the Islamic-
      Gnostic doctrines and later overcame the Monophysites, a counter-
      movement that rejected the reality and completeness of Jesus' human
      body, his consubstantiality with us. The chart below might help us
      grasp the differences in black and white terms.


      Nestorians: One person, two hypostases, two natures.
      Catholics: One person, one hypostasis, two natures.
      Monophysites: One person, one hypostasis, one nature.
