Thanks to everyone who attended last night's TTS Foundations session at Freedom Church! We were finishing our introductory series on the doctrine of God. This time, the 'big one' - the doctrine of the Trinity.
For many it's like theology's quantum physics; for the super clever, but not-for-me. However, as we established last night, we cannot afford to neglect the Trinity. Not because we need all our intellectual ducks in a row - but because it's what God's people have confessed since the beginning, all Christian doctrine is Trinity-shaped, and it's the jewel in the crown of Biblical theology. The Trinity is God's most intimate revelation about himself.
For all eternity, there has only ever been one God - the LORD God of Israel. He has eternally existed as three totally distinct persons, each sharing the same divine being and one united will. Kings and prophets have longed to know what we know. What a privilege!
Find full notes below, as well as two videos - one is Piper's 'sermon jam' on the Trinity, the other is "All Praise to Him", a Trinitarian doxology, both of which we played last night.
Many thanks to all those who turned up last night for our second Foundations session! We started a three part series on the Doctrine of God, based on our confession of "One God, the Father, the Almighty".
Who is God? What is the Divine Name, and why is it important? In what way is God different from creation, and why does that even matter? What is the Glory of God, and why do the Biblical authors speak about it so frequently? How can we even relate to such a big, majestic God?
We looked at all these questions and more! You can find notes below, as well as the video clip we played. (The burning bush scene from "Prince of Egypt".)
