Is the doctrine of the Trinity a fundamental of the faith? What do we mean by words like “essence” and “person”? Can the Trinity be found in the Old Testament? How do we know the Holy Spirit is fully God? What are some practical implications of the knowledge of the Trinity? These are some of the questions we ask and hope to answer in today’s episode. Join Joel, Nathan, Shawn, and Kyle as they sit down to discuss Westminster Confession of Faith 2.3:
In the unity of the Godhead there be three Persons of one substance, power, and eternity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. The Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father; the Holy Ghost eternally proceeding from the Father and the Son.
