We, then, following the holy Fathers, all with one consent, teach men to confess one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, the same perfect in Godhead and also perfect in manhood; truly God and truly man, of a reasonable [rational] soul and body; consubstantial [coessential] with the Father according to the Godhead, and consubstantial with as according to the Manhood; in all things like unto us, Without sin; begotten before all ages of the Father according to the Godhead, and in these latter days, for us and for our saivation, born of the Virgin Mary, the Mother of God, according to the Manhond; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only- begotten, to be acknowledged   in two nature, inconfusably, unchangeably, indivisibly, inseparably; the distinction of natures being  by no means taken away by the union, but rather the property of each nature being preserved, and concurring in one Person and one Subsistence, not parted or divided into persons, but one and the same Son, and only begotten, God, the   Lord Jesus Christ, as the prophets from the beginning [have declared] concerning him, and the Lord Jesus Christ himself has taught us, and the Creed of the holy Fathers has been handed down to us.
