On the Communication of Properties in Christ

How is it said that God purchased the Church with his blood (Acts 20:28), when God does not have blood?  The answer is that it was Christ who bled, who is both God and man.

The attribution of the properties of one of Christ’s natures to the other (such as in Acts 20:28) is called the doctrine of the communication of properties.  It is often thought that a real communication of properties is solely a Lutheran teaching.  Yet the reformed affirmed this doctrine in a certain respect, that the properties of both natures of Christ are really communicated to his Person.
