[1(52)] Our adversaries agree to the third article, in which we confess that in Christ there are two natures; namely, that the Son of God assumed human nature, and thus God and man are one person, one Christ; and that this Christ suffered and died for us, to reconcile us unto the Father; that he arose from the dead, possesses an eternal kingdom, justifies and sanctifies all believers, etc., as is taught in the Apostolic Creed and the Symbol of Nicaea.
