The Trinity

Posted by thephotominister on May 1, 2013 at 12:15 AM

Although the word " Trinity " is not found in the Bible, theologians have employed it to do justice to the biblical teaching that God is not only one in nature, but also three in person. As one follows the self-revelation of God in redemptive history, we discover not only the oneness of God ( Deut. 6:4-5, Isaiah 44:6 ), but also the affirmation that the Father is God ( John 20:17 ), the Son is God ( John 1:1, 14, Romans 9:5, Colossians 2:9 ), and the Holy Spirit is God ( Genesis 1:2, Acts 5:3-4, 1Corinthians 3:16 ). The following four statements summarize the truths about the Trinity: 1. God is one. , 2. God has three distinct ways of being in the redemptive event. God the Father imparts Himself to mankind through Son and Spirit without ceasing to be Himself. , 3. The primary way of understanding the concept of the Trinity is through the three fold participation in Salvation. Salvation involves the definitive presence of the Father in the person of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. , 4. The doctrine of the Trinity is a absolute mystery. It is primarily known, not through speculation, but through experiencing the act of grace through personal faith.
