Despite its affirmation by the Sixth Ecumenical Council, the doctrine that Christ had two wills (Dyothelitism) continues to be challenged by Christian scholars to this day. The main reason for this continual unease is that Dyothelites have yet to provide a satisfactory account of how Christ could have two wills and yet remained one person. 1 show that further development of the Divine Preconscious Model of the Incarnation, coupled with insights from recent patristic scholarship, will help to resolve the debate between Dyolhelites and Monothelites.
