Slide16

Transcendence

God is transcendent and beyond all of creation – so all ideas and speech about God is going to somehow be lacking in a fully explaining who God is.

Slide17

Father Revealed by the Son

God is Father in as much as he is the Creator of the world

God is Father because of the covenant he made with Israel to send his 1

st

born Son

Father is the first origin of everything

Father shows his goodness and loving care for his children

Jesus Himself reveals God as the Father and as Creator

Eternally God is Father by his relationship with His only Son

AD 325- Council of Nicaea- Son is consubstantial with the Father

Slide18

Father & Son Revealed by the Spirit

Jesus promises to send the Spirit

The sending of the Spirit is after Jesus’ glorification

Holy Spirit is not the “spirit” of the Father

Dogma of the Trinity

In the 1 Divine Nature (when we say nature, philosophically it means the essence of being – so there is 1 Divine Nature consisting of 3 Divine Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

No one of the 3 Divine Persons is either of the other Divine Persons – but rather each Person of Trinity is wholly Himself.

The Father is the 1 true God, the Son is the 1 true God, and the Holy Spirit is the 1 True God.

There are not 3 Gods, but 1 God.

Slide25

The Importance of Words in Theology and Philosophy

Possessive Statements

Very important for natures

Who vs. What

What = nature (1 God)

Who = person (3 Persons)

Nature decides what I can do

Person describes who we are

If you were to ask God:

Q: What are you? A: God would respond together, “GOD!”

Q: Who are you? A: They would each respond “Father, “Son,” or “Holy Spirit.”
