How do we really know God is a Trinity of Persons?

By Dr. Jeff Mirus (bio - articles - email) | May 28, 2019

In this presentation, Dr. Jeff Mirus explains how we know that God is a Trinity of Persons (three persons in one God), how we can at least begin to understand this mystery, and how important it is to an understanding of human life and love.

This is the fourth video in the “How do we really know” series. The list of Scripture citations covered in the video are available for download in the links below, along with additional reading on this rich theological topic.

In addition to the ten resources listed below, which include the list of citations used in the lecture, I would recommend reading Pope Saint John Paul II’s 1986 encyclical on the Holy Spirit for greater insight into the Trinity: Dominum et vivificantem (Lord and Giver of Life).

There are some technical improvements in this fourth effort. I believe the audio has been improved, and I have forsaken an old-school whiteboard (which was used very little) for a more informative video-generated whiteboard technique.

If you prefer an audio-only format, you will find it here.
