Delve into Trinitarian theology and understand how the Trinity is a biblically rooted doctrine inherent in the gospel. Explore the God who’s revealed in Scripture, the God who’s revealed in the NT, the God who’s revealed in Jesus, is the God of the gospel, who is Father, Son, and Spirit. Understand the distinction between the ontological and the economic Trinity and develop the concept of perichoresis, the mutual indwelling of the Father, Son, and Spirit in the life of God. The Trinitarian theology is the development of that great good news and of our share in it as disciples of Jesus Christ.
