Kevin Vanhoozer on the Trinity and the apostolic witness

The doctrine of the Trinity . . . summarizes the thrust of the central apostolic testimony that "it is not possible to turn to the God of Israel without at the same time turning to Jesus."
Kevin J. Vanhoozer, The Drama of Doctrine, 81; quote in italics from David S. Yeago

thanks for this wonderful post on the Trinity. It is amazing when ever I think of the Trinity and the way that God created us. Body, Mind, and Spirit just as the Trinity. Thank you for this information and reminder of a powerful witness. I hope you have a great Sunday experience.

Your welcome. And thanks for giving me a head's up on your post. Quite fascinating, and I left a couple of comments there.

Yes, it's been a good day, both at church, and in sharing from God's word and singing at the nursing home. I needed it just as much or more than the residents there. And so good to have a dear sister singing the way she did, and with her, "Amens!"

Hope you had a blessed Lord's Day as well! Thanks.

hey Maalie- Teds quite a witness for real.... :o)

Thanks for stopping by. Of course any witness I have is only because of Jesus.

That reminds me that Deb and I saw at a festival in Grand Rapids where we live, on Saturday, a beautiful watercolor painting entitled "the Easter Lamb." A big lamb representing Jesus, as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, and a little lamb nearby, representing us, for whom this Lamb was slain.
