How can God be one and three? How can Jesus be God and yet not another God? And what about the Spirit, where does he fit in?
In the last episode of Thinking Theology, we saw that God promised in the Old Testament that a day would arrive when he would come in person to save his people and be with them. But astonishingly, that happened in the coming of the man Jesus. Jesus did all the things that only God himself does like creating the world, miracles and forgiving sins. Jesus showed himself to be God, distinct from the Father. But how does that work?
That’s what we’re thinking about in this episode of Thinking Theology. We’re thinking about the Trinity—one God in three persons.
