Video – Fr Maximilian – The Cornerstone #15: Divinization
Loading the player...
Such passages of the Sacred Page as 2 Peter 1:4 and 2 Corinthians 8:9 manifest that another motive for the Incarnation, besides Redemption from sin, was man's elevation from a natural state to a supernatural life in Christ Jesus. In this episode hear how St. Athanasius (d. 373) and the Liturgy speak of man's deification (theosis) through the Incarnate Logos.
