The Trinity prolegomena

30th July 2020

Trinity

So, Christians and Muslims believe that God is one but how this Oneness is explained moves the two great religions in different ways of interpretation.  For Christian theology we can talk about ‘The economy of God’.  God has revealed himself in three Persons as, Father the Creator, The Son as Redeemer and the Holy Spirit as Sanctifier.  This is a movement within perichoreses.  This does not mean three God and the Trinitarian Persons are One in Essence.  This is a very fine line to walk but it is the Biblical witness that was thrashed out at various councils of the Church.   Before moving onto the theology within these councils it is incumbent on us to look at the Biblical witness on the Trinity.
