A Different Look at the Trinity

  • Hans Schwarz Universität Regensburg, Germany


For most Christians the doctrine of the Trinity is accepted as a matter of fact. Especially in systematic theology the Trinity is frequently used as the starting point for theological deliberations. Yet when we ask a Christian lay person what this doctrine means we usually do not get an answer. Does this mean that theologians have not really communicated the meaning of this doctrine to the Christian community or have they delved into something that is totally incomprehensible?

Keywords: Trinity, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Christianism, Person, Substance, Bible, Jewish monotheism
