Another division found within Cristology, that which is classically called the The States of Christ. That is to say, his position, or his status, or what he passed through.
He had two states in his mediatorial role: humiliation and his exaltation. All orthodox chrisitians hold to this distinction.
When we are talking about the States of Christ, we are not contemplating his eternal existence, but we are thinking of Christ as the mediator between sinful men and a holy God.
To represent me, Christ the Logos, had to change his state, or position of life, and his relation to the law. As his state in life changed, he voluntarily changed it, the resulting condition, or personal experience of his being, changed.
