Q. 22. How did Christ, being the Son of God, become man?


A. Christ, the Son of God, became man, by taking to himself a true body, and a reasonable soul, being conceived by the power of the Holy Ghost, in the womb of the Virgin Mary, and born of her, yet without sin.

Westminster Shorter Catechism

So, it’s the Incarnation again. What can I say? I could ponder this mystery endlessly. In this catechism answer, I’m particularly intrigued by the part about a reasonable soul. What is a soul? Are there unreasonable souls?
