Understanding the Trinity () by Alister E. McGrath/5(2). Understanding the Trinity is a revolution in Christian thought and philosophy. True Christianity is a Jewish religion established and organized by Jews. Gentiles were invited by Jews, with God’s approval, to participate in the Christian movement.

Understanding the Trinity focuses on one major area of Bible doctrine, namely the doctrine of the triune God.

What could be more important than the doctrine of God himself and that he has revealed himself to us in Scripture as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?3/5. This book is not about the Trinity so much as it is about how we understand the Trinity (or God). McGrath's thesis is that God is infinite, while humans are limited creatures, so we need models (a.k.a.

analogies, pictures, metaphors or parables) by which we can learn about Him. This book is a thorough (e.g. an entire chapter on Filoque!) and really quite readable introduction that accomplishes what its title says--understanding the doctrine of the Trinity. This is a non-technical work with a minimum of Greek (all transliterated into English) yet covers the subject with depth, integrity, and sparkle.5/5(2).

The Trinity is the foundational Christian belief that God is one Being who exists in three Persons.” Unpacking the Definition. The word Trinity means three-in-one. No, the word Trinity does not appear in the Bible. But that doesn’t mean the concept isn’t clearly taught.

Augustine This book is not for the faint of heart, but it is hard to imagine a more influential (and misunderstood!) work on the Trinity. Its brilliance owes not merely to what Augustine says, but. Although the bible does not mention the word “Trinity” in all the books, however, there is a word mentioned in the bible that confirms the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.

This word reveals the plurality-in-unity of the divine nature of God/5(36). God is a triune God. Thus the term: "Tri" meaning three, and "Unity" meaning one, Tri+Unity = Trinity.

It is a way of acknowledging what the Bible reveals to us about God, that God is yet three "Persons" who have the same essence of deity. The definition of the Trinity would be: There is only one God who is eternally manifesting Himself in three persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The best section in the Bible to easily understand the Trinity is the book of 1 John. This book is loaded with verses which flow together so nicely to show the holy Trinity.

Probably the most widely held Christian view of God is known as the “trinity.” This popular belief teaches that the Godhead consists of three distinct persons who have existed together from eternity past and are named the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit.

Each one possesses original, underived, and unborrowed life. The doctrine of the Trinity means that there is one God who eternally exists as three distinct Persons—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Stated differently, God is one in essenceand three in person.

We believe that the one God eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God, co-equal and co-eternal, having precisely the same nature and attributes, and worthy of precisely the same worship, confidence, and obedience.

The stated purpose of this book is to lay the foundations for the Christian understanding of the Trinity. As such, it does not deal extensively with either the biblical evidence or the historical /5(2).This book is best for ages 4 and up, because that’s really when the concept of Father, Son and Holy Spirit starts to roll around in our kids’ minds.

It’s called 3-in A Picture of God. It goes really well with the apple object lesson, because it explains in detail how the Trinity can be understood. Question: "What does the Bible teach about the Trinity?" Answer: The most difficult thing about the Christian concept of the Trinity is that there is no way to perfectly and completely understand it.

The Trinity is a concept that is impossible for any human being to fully understand, let alone explain.
