    You’re not missing anything.

    Augustine saw some things differently than the Greek fathers, but this is one thing in which there is consensus among them all. The Cappadocians would be horrified that there might be eternal subordination of the Son, and differentiated the Persons pretty much on the same basis as did Augustine later, although I think without as much detail.

    Anyway, eternal subordination is a significant departure from classical Christian understanding. Scot McKnight told me that a fellow theology professor told him such a thing is actually considered to be closer to Arianism. If Jesus is not fully God (as well as fully human), then what is he???
