Plenitude of Christ

As divine person: He is wholly relative and in no way absolute. If one tries to think about just this person in abstraction from the relation to the others, he thinks of absolutely nothing.

As divine nature. He is wholly absolute and in no way relative. If one tries to make him co-exist with anything else – as, say, the highest part of being or the crown of the universe – then he is thinking of nothing at all.

As human nature: He is relative in some ways and absolute in others. Like every instance of human nature he is a relation to his parent and his first ancestor, but he can be considered absolutely as this being.
