Oriental Orthodox variation

Hi, I wanted to add the little paragraph (although it might appear repetitive) because I thought it is important just to show the difference on how we see Christ differently. The article is about Jesus Christ so whilst we SEE him with Hypostatic Union they dont ... I was wondering if it was better headed as Hypostatic Union? what are some peoples thoughts? Im not a theology expert so feedback would be great. PS. I didnt want the paragraph to turn into a theological debate between the two that is not the purpose so I would ask from people refraining to resolve the issue in this article ...

The Church uses the technical term Hypostatic Union (Υποστατική Ένωσις), and so it is not out of place in the article. Peter

Thanks, NateL - must have missed this one earlier.
This page is an obvious target for vandals - hence, it's protected. All edits to be suggested on this page to be incorporated into the article. — by Pιsτévο talk complaints at 04:51, June 25, 2009 (UTC)

Suggestion: Hebrew tag

With my simple template, Hebrew will look a lot better. Some examples copied from the article:

  • "Jesus" is a transliteration, occurring in a number of languages and based on the Latin Iesus, of the Greek Ιησους (Iēsoûs), itself a Hellenisation of the Hebrew יהושע
(Yehoshua) or Hebrew-Aramaic ישוע
(Yeshua ), (Joshua), meaning "the Lord saves".
  • "Christ" is His title derived from the Greek Χριστος (Christós), meaning the "Anointed One", a translation of the Hebrew-derived Mashiach ("Messiah").[1]

"God with us" is derived from the Immanuel (Hebrew עִמָּנוּאֵל ) which is from the Hebrew Text of the Old Testament that consists of two Hebrew words: אל

(El, meaning God) and עמנו
(Imanu, meaning with us).

2 little suggestions to add in the article.

Preaching Jesus Christ’s main mission was to preach the Kingdom of God as man’s only hope of salvation and gave this instruction to his disciples (Matthew 28:19) Throughout his earthly ministry, he healed the sick, performed miracles, used parables to convey his messages of morality and wisdom. He had 12 disciples that helped him and he picked from all ranges from life such as tax collectors, fishermen and doctors. His twelve disciples were: Simon (called Peter), Andrew, James son of Zebedee, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Thomas, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Thaddeus, Simon the Zealot and Judas Iscariot who was later replaced by Matthias (Acts 1:26) --

As he gained prominence, he got frequently got into trouble with the religious authorities in his time called the Pharisees and the Saducees who did not approve of his preaching activities. Throughout his earthly life he was known as the Son of God, the Christ (Messiah) Master, Lord, Mighty God (John 20:29) and Teacher.

Note: I just thought it would be good to give out the basics as well to make this entry more complete. Just a thought.
  1. A Messiah is a king anointed at God's direction or with God's approval.
