Jesus' Human Nature
#1
As we know Our Lord was not created. But do we say that His human nature was created or not? Having some trouble understanding that.. Thanks!

Yes, our Lord has a created human nature.

Although He was miraculously conceived of a Virgin, He was conceived nonetheless, in the womb and in time, and His human soul was created from nothing and united to the zygote, as happens with all human life.  If you are asking about the details of the physical nature of the conception, I don't think there's a teaching on that, nor need we inquire further.  It suffices to know it was miraculous.  Our Lord's human nature is fully human, body and soul, just like ours, save sin and His special privileges (the Hypostatic Union, the Beatific Vision, infused knowledge, etc.).

Does that help clear things up?
