Week 4 – The Old Testament Trinity

The Old Testament Trinity

John 3:16-21

For this is how God loved the world:
He gave his only Son,
So that everyone who believes in him may not perish
But may have eternal life.
For God sent his Son into the world
Not to judge the world,
But so that through him the world might be saved.
No one who believes in him will be judged;
But whoever does not believe is judged already,
Because that person does not believe
In the Name of God’s only Son.
And the judgment is this:
Though the light has come into the world
People have preferred
Darkness to the light,
Because their deeds were evil.
And indeed, everybody who does wrong
Hates the light and avoids it,
To prevent his actions from being shown up;
But whoever does the truth
Comes out into the light,
So that what he is doing may plainly appear as done in God.

  • What image would you use to express the inexpressible?
  • How would you convey something too wonderful for words?
  • If you would find your liberation at hand, how would you picture it?
