The Tripersonal God: Understanding and Interpreting the Trinity. Examines the Old Testament roots of trinitarian thought, the historical developments that gave rise to the doctrine of the trinity and contemporary thinking about trinitarian issues/5. Catherine Mowry LaCugna provides us with a thoughtful and provocative exposition of the Trinitarian faith, showing that the immanent Trinity (God in God's self) cannot be known except through God's economy of salvation.

She demonstrates with great coherence that we know God's being (ousia) in God's persons as Father, Son, Holy by:   Ten essential books on the Trinity. God’s Being Is in Becoming () 5. Jürgen Moltmann, The Trinity and the Kingdom () 6.

The Trinity O'Collins, The Tri-Personal God Coffey, Deus Trinitas Balthasar, Credo Kasper, The God of Jesus Christ. Friday, J am. A hint of the doctrine of the Trinity can be found in the first verse of the Bible. In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth (Genesis ).

The Hebrew word for God is Elohim. Elohim is a plural noun but it is used here with a singular verb bara. Man, in order to be in the image of God, must have another in which he could relate.

God fashioned a woman out of the flesh of the man. God created a garden for the man and woman to tend. The book of Genesis describes God as “walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Genesis ). He was coming to have fellowship with the man and woman.

Thus the term: "Tri" meaning three, and "Unity" meaning one, Tri+Unity = Trinity. It is a way of acknowledging what the Bible reveals to us about God, that God is yet three "Persons" who have the same essence of deity.

God the Father at the top and the others somewhere underneath him – but remember that the suggestion is that they are all one person according to the argument of the Trinity, so it is impossible for one being to have parts of it which are of higher authority than other parts of it.

If any doctrine makes Christianity Christian, then surely it is the doctrine of the Trinity. The three great ecumenical creeds—the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed—are all structured around our three in one God, underlying the Author: Kevin Deyoung.

Keeping the Trinity Personal Defending the oneness of God shouldn't nullify the Bible's claims about the mutual love of Father, Son, and Spirit.

Peter J. Leithart J However, the reader should know that Yarnell and his book unashamedly argue that God is indeed a Trinity. While there are those who would argue against Yarnell, they could not lay a charge on him that he did not provide Scriptural evidence that God is a Trinity/5(15).

In Trinitarian doctrine, God exists as three persons or hypostases, but is one being, having a single divine nature. The members of the Trinity are co-equal and co-eternal, one in essence, nature, power, action, and will.

As stated in the Athanasian Creed, the Father is uncreated, the Son is uncreated. Since about there has been a remarkable outpouring of theological work on the doctrine of the Trinity.

There has also been, in recent decades, important progress in scholarship concerning the formation of the doctrine in the fourth century. Still more recently, analytic philosophers of religion have probed the “three-in-oneness” problem of the Trinity, attempting to state with greater.

The “Us” in Genesis cannot be the supposed other two members of the Trinity because it says God made man in his image.

If God is a Trinity of Persons, then man, being made in God’s image, would have to be tri-personal as well. Since man is a uni- personal being, God must be a uni-personal being. Seeing the Trinity in the Gospels.

to God. I know the Father because I know (and am known by) Jesus, who is shown to me by the Spirit. The one God (one in being and act) truly is a tri-personal (or tri-relational, if you prefer) communion of love, reaching out to us. God is all about accessibility, relate-ability, love and connection.

Is the Holy Spirit Neglected in the Book of Revelation. For if God is a tri-personal being, as the doctrine of Trinity asserts, then man would have to be a tri-personal being Author: Kermit Zarley.

A little later in the book, Peterson goes on to say: ‘Trinity understands God as three-personed: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, God in community, each “person” in active communion with the others.’ Yeah, that’s it. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit in.

Gerald O’Collins SJ is a professor at the Gregorian University in Rome. He is a gifted scholar and teacher who writes extremely well. Many books on the trinity are complex, impenetrable and inaccessible but this one is different. In the first section of the book (chs 1–4) Professor O’Collins explores the biblical basis of trinitarian theology.

Yes the Holy Trinity is true and one of life’s great mysteries, can takes years to even begin the grasp the complexities of it.

The big takeaway is that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are three separate and distinct “persons” but one God. All three have always existed as one outside of time. But the Trinity teaches us that before the foundation of the world, God was having fellowship within his own being.

That's why the Bible tells us that the Father loves the Son (John ). In some sense we can never understand that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit have forever communicated and loved each other.

The origin of the doctrine of the Trinity is the Bible, although the word Trinity is not used in the Bible. As all orthodox Christians agree, the doctrine of the Trinity holds that God is one essence but three Persons; God has one nature, but three centers of consciousness; God is.

Persons are God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We are now going to talk about the second Person of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ. We are going to talk about His deity. It is easy for us to think about Him as being human, but it is more difficult to understand that He is also God.

The doctrine is essentially that God is one in being while existing as three co-equal, co-eternal Persons, namely, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. One often-heard objection to the Trinity is that the doctrine logically entails tritheism (a belief in three gods).

The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons--the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Stated differently, God is one in essence and three in : Is Jesus Christ God. Augustine The City of God Book 11 Chapter The true objects of enjoyment, then, are the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, who are at the same time the Trinity, one Being, supreme above all, and common to all who enjoy Him, if He is an object, and not rather the cause of all objects, or indeed even if He is the cause of all.

Their “dancing” relationship the Tri-Personal God desires to see reproduced between them and all humanity, and this the sovereign Tri-Personal deity has done, is doing and will continue to do ad infinitum. Because all creation exists “inside” the Trinity, creation becomes infused, like gravity, with the Love they share.

“Relationship. —God, Christ, Mary and Grace, The point here is that if the doctrine of the Trinity is true, then God is a tri-personal being. And while God the Son was incarnate, he related to God, or the tri-personal being. Therefore, when he worshipped and prayed, Jesus Christ worshipped and prayed also to his own divine Person.

I have always been fascinated with the Godhead, and having actually studied it, I am going to make just a few little comments. What I am NOT going to do is like many clergy, parrot the Apostle’s Creed, or Athanasian Creed, or any of the other Cath.

Karl Barth and Karl Rahner are two early leaders of the trinitarian revival, both of whom arrived at a decidedly anti-Social conception of the Trinity. Both deny that the divine Persons are “persons” in the ordinary sense, but there is difficulty in saying positively what their conception of the Persons amounts : William Hasker.

All this we find in the Preface for the Mass on the Feast of the Holy Trinity: "Father, all-powerful and ever-living God, we joyfully. The doctrine of the Trinity defines God as one being who eternally exists as three distinct Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Put simply, “one God in three persons”.

Each of these persons has their own will, personality and they each perform different roles. An obvious sign of such belief would be talking about the one God as the Trinity, and not, as earlier, God the Father.

The idea of one God as the Trinity is implied in many works of the latter part of the fourth century. For instance, the theologian Augustine wrote in the year CE that.Karl Barth's criticism of the Trinitarian formula "one God in three persons" is correct because "person" no longer adequately conveys the same meaning it did when it was used by the early Church fathers and creeds.

After the Post-Reformation era, an attribute of self-consciousness was added to the meaning of "person" that had the unintended consequence of changing the meaning of "three persons.

Here’s how Geerhardus Vos articulates the core affirmations of the orthodox doctrine of the Trinity. There is only one divine being. Scripture expresses itself decisively against all polytheism (Deut ; Isa ; Jas ).
