Chapter Summary

The separation introduced by sin cannot hinder, then, that man, in Christ and by the action of the Holy Spirit, can return to unity and the full communion for which he was created. This is possible since the created nature of man has a historical and dynamic dimension; it is essentially temporal and is manifested and perfected in activity. The Nyssian coherently affirms that the incarnation reached its fullness in the death and resurrection of Christ, when he had penetrated the totality of the temporal extension of human nature. The authentic signification of the social analogy of the Trinity is to be sought in the connection between Trinitarian doctrine, Christology and anthropology. In a certain sense it could be said that it says nothing on God, but everything on man.
