2) The death of Jesus: The ultimate demonstration of the human nature of Christ is his death on the cross, because God cannot die; only humans do. Jesus identified himself as Son of Man, when he said: “The Son of Man must be handed over sinners and be crucified” (Luke 24:7).( Source: THE APOSTLES’ Creed Book page 41 authored by: Rev. Fr. Paolo O. Pirlo, SHMI ; Imprimatur: Most Rev. Socrates B. Villegas, D.D. Chairman of the Episcopal Commission on Catechesis and Catholic Education December 20, 2012)

468 After the Council of Chalcedon, some made of Christ’s human nature a kind of personal subject. Against them, the fifth ecumenical council, at Constantinople in 553, confessed that “there is but one hypostasis [or person], which is our Lord Jesus Christ, one of the Trinity.”93 Thus everything in Christ’s human nature is to be attributed to his divine person as its proper subject, not only his miracles but also his sufferings and even his death: “He who was crucified in the flesh, our Lord Jesus Christ, is true God, Lord of glory, and one of the Holy Trinity.” (Source: Catechism of the Catholic Church paragraph 468).
