From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    that act of grace whereby Christ took our human nature into
    union with his Divine Person, became man. Christ is both God and
    man. Human attributes and actions are predicated of him, and he
    of whom they are predicated is God. A Divine Person was united
    to a human nature (Acts 20:28; Rom. 8:32; 1 Cor. 2:8; Heb.
    2:11-14; 1 Tim. 3:16; Gal. 4:4, etc.). The union is
    hypostatical, i.e., is personal; the two natures are not mixed
    or confounded, and it is perpetual.
