And receives these names already in his divine nature. 23 And yet, this would seem to contradict the passage we have just seen. For Origen had made it plain that these names should not lead us to think of him as corporeal in nature (and therefore multiple). The point of all this would seem to be that the multiplicity of names has to do with the multiplicity of good things which Christ is for us, rather than who he is in his essence. It is not that the Son is multiple in his nature, but rather that he is experienced in a multitude of ways because of the multiple needs of fallen creation.
2. 3. ’ 14 There was no other impersonal ‘wisdom’ that the Father possessed and then imparted to his Son. This will be important in our later discussions about the divine wisdom in the Arian controversy. Eusebius of Caesarea and others wanted to distinguish between the ‘wisdom’ of God (as an impersonal characteristic) and the hypostatic ‘wisdom’ which could be equated with the Son, while Athanasius accused them of teaching that God had ‘two wisdoms’. It should be noted that here Origen is more closely linked with the Alexandrian bishop in maintaining that if there had been a time ‘before’ the begetting of the Son, then God would have been without his wisdom.
The view we are now discussing accepts a real distinction of various operations or ‘energies’ of God towards the created world, which justify us in naming him by a number of distinct titles; but these intelligible ‘energies’ have then to be distinguished from the inexpressible divine essence from which they proceed. 25 Another passage that speaks to this issue is Com. Joh. 243–4: We must not pass over in silence that he is rightly ‘wisdom of God’ and therefore said to be this. For the wisdom of the God and Father of all does not have his hypostasis in mere imaginings (KÌ ¯ÈÎ·}Ú ˆ‹ÌÙ·Ûﬂ·ÈÚ) like dreams in human thoughts (ÙÔ}Ú IÌËÒ˘ﬂÌÔÈÚ KÌÌÔﬁÏ·ÛÈ ˆ‹ÌÙ‹ÛÏ·Ù·).
