The main purpose of this article is to examine Karl Barth’s analogical use of the concept of the Trinitarian co-inherence in his theology of ethics in the ecclesiastical context, particularly its relation to the hypostatic union of the two natures of Jesus Christ. Furthermore, this study will examine whether the Christological communicatio can be the very basis and mediating model of the analogical relation between the Trinitarian inner divine communion and the d i v i n e-human communion. We will see how Barth identifies the Being of the Trinity with His action in relation to His Being and what its immediate relation to the Christological communicatio operationum and eventually to the very being of the Church would be like. In doing so, we can judge whether the Church as the Body of Christ can be the locus where divine action and human action unite together, creating a new ontological category. This study will press further to contend whether the relationship between divine action and human action in the Church would indirectly reflect the Trinitarian pattern of the inner divine co - inherence. Then, we will see how the Christological communicatio, particularly the operationum or apotelesmatum, can present the dynamics of the perichoretic inner divine co-inherence and its immediate effect on the relation between God and Christians in the ecclesiastical context.
