Theotokos

Literally, “God-bearing,” this title of the Mother of God was given to the Blessed Mother in the fourth century and signified the widespread devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The term was used as part of the popular piety of the early first millennium church, and which continues to the present day in both the Eastern and Western Churches.

The term was disputed in the early fifth century when the Nestorian heresy denied the divine maternity of the Blessed Virgin.

The doctrine of the Blessed Virgin as the Mother of God was confirmed by the third ecumenical council of Ephesus in 431 to preserve the teaching of the Church that Jesus was both Divine and human, and that the two natures were united in His One Person. (7:41)

Theophany

This term, applied to the direct or hidden appearances of God in the Scriptures, is derived from the Greek, meaning literally “God in brightness.”

God appearing on Mt. Sinai, in storm, in the cloud and at the transfiguration are examples.  The most ancient forms of God’s appearances are in the forces of nature, such as in fire, and in human “likenesses.”

The direct communication or appearance by God to human beings are also identified with God confronting Adam and Eve after their disobedience; God appearing to Moses out of a burning bush; Abraham pleading with Yahweh to be merciful to Sodomites.

These theophanies were temporary manifestations.  They were not like the Incarnation, which, though it began in time, will continue for all eternity.  In Christian times God is recognized by faith. (7:40)
