Chapter 2: Paragraph 3: The Trinity: Part Two
The divinity of the Son
The divinity of the Spirit
We continue with the doctrine of the Trinity. Last week we made a beginning at looking at the biblical data establishing that in both the OT and the NT there is a very clear plurality of persons that is presented to us in the form of progressive revelation. We recognized that the Bible does not present the evidence of God’s nature in a textbook form but because each part is God’s word and we cannot make God a liar who contradicts Himself we take all the data and assimilate it in order to make it agree. So far we have been able to agree that there is the insistence of there being only one God but that this God is presented as three persons. Our job today is to consider some of the evidence that shows the divinity of these other persons, namely the Son and Spirit.
