Athanasian Creed (Harley) n. 29

Previous Number Next Number Next Translation See Latin 

29. That the Human is Divine is evident when it is stated in Isaiah that "A Virgin shall bring forth a Son whose name is God with us," [7:14, 15] and elsewhere that, "A son and child shall be born whose name shall be God, Father of eternity." [9:6].

Then again it is said,

"Of David shall be born One who will be called Jehovah our Righteousness." [Jer. 23:5, 6; 33:15, 16].

In these and other passages is meant the Lord as to the Human, which therefore is called God, Father of Eternity and Jehovah.
