Christ rose again having our Whole Nature in Himself

Having been made man, He had our whole nature in Himself, in order to renew it and restore it to its original state… For all good things flow through Him into us too…

For this reason our Saviour is called the Second Adam in the divine scriptures. For in that First Adam, the human race proceeded from not being to being, and having come forth, decayed because it broke the Divine Law. In the Second Adam, Christ, it rose up again unto a new beginning and was restored to a newness of life and returned to incorruption. As Paul says, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature” (2 Cor 5:17). We have been given a renewing Spirit, the Holy Spirit, the source of eternal life, after Christ was glorified, i. e., after His Resurrection, when having burst the bonds of death and appeared superior to all corruption, He lived again having our whole nature in Himself, in that He was Man and One of us. (St Cyril The Great)
