Discovering the Mystery of the Unity of God provides an eye-opening exploration of the triune nature of God from the pages of the Hebrew Scriptures. The approach is reverent, yet encyclopedic, with each of the nineteen chapters and eight appendices being a self-contained look at various facets of the plural unity of God. The reader may be surprised to discover that the great preponderance of references to God's triunity occur in the Old Covenant Scriptures. Author John B. Metzger considers each reference diligently and brings along the commentary of a host of solid Bible teachers, including those from the Messianic Jewish perspective, to give the reader access to rich food for thought.
Serious theology students, seminaries, and church libraries will benefit from this engaging tour of God's Word in search of new understanding of God's nature from the richness of the Bible's Jewish perspective. With the Logos edition, each Scripture is linked with your favorite translation, and easy to study side by side with your other commentaries. You can search by topic or Scripture with lightning fast results!
Finally, a useful book on the Triune nature of God! For years both in sharing the Good News of Messiah and in planting messianic congregations, we’ve lacked a suitable book for teaching on this profound and essential doctrine of the faith. In both communicating to the non-believing Jewish community or in messianic discipleship there has been an evident and great need that is met by John Metzger’s book.

John Metzger provides not only comprehensive, biblical based theology of Trinitarianism but a magnificent apologetic work on this cardinal doctrine of the Christian Faith. Moreover, the irenic tone in which it is articulated is designed to build bridges of understanding to the adherents of strict monotheism of Judaism by demonstrating that the God[. . . . ]of their fathers is at the same time one God existing in three persons. Metzger’s scholarly presentation of the biblical data is flavored by an evangelistic urgency that those who are so close and yet so far from the faith might become believers in the God of their fathers who is the Triune God.
