Why The Father Makes Up The Trinity

Good Essays
The trinity is made up of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Many people question why God the Father is the first person that makes up the trinity. The three reasons we learned in class why Father is first in the trinity is: if there is a son then there is a father, Jesus called God the Father “Father”, and God the Father has many characteristics of fatherhood. The Trinity started with God the Father and life starts with a “Father” and we are his children whom he made us all equal and all in his own image.God the Father is meant to be the beginning love which is why he is the first person of the Trinity. It only makes sense that the Trinity starts with the Father then to the Son and the Holy Spirit.
First, God the Father has many characteristics of fatherhood. Having a son which is Jesus who he sent down to earth to die for our sins gives God the Father one attribute of fatherhood. “I will offer my son whom I

“For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.”(John 5:18) In this bible verse John talks about how Jesus was wanting to get murdered for calling God his Father.People did not believe that he was God the Fathers son so they wanted to murder for him for thinking he was equal to God. Which he is because there is only one God but in three persons. God the Father is first in the Trinity because Jesus Christ himself called him God the Father. That is why the Trinity goes in the order of Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. Also in John 14:6 Jesus says “No one comes to the Father except through me.” We need to get through God the Father’s son Jesus in order to speak to the Father. “The Father sending the son, the Son giving us the Spirit, the Son glorifying the Father.” (LoveMakesSenseofGod p.39). God the Father started everything through himself that is why he is the first person of the

    Christ directly claimed to be God multiple times, refuting those who claim he was just a good teacher who never claimed divinity. John 14:13 records Jesus as saying, "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (The Holy Bible)” In this verse, he directly claims to be the Son of God. Not only that, but he also claims the ability to answer any prayer that is asked in his name. At this time, he directly claims the authority of God in answering prayer, the authority of being the Son of God, and he says that by answering prayers the Father is glorified through his Son.…

    Knowing that Jesus is God the Son, that means that, from time immemorial, the Son is He who would be sent by the Father to suffer and die. The relationship of the Father and the Son is centered around the Father sending the Son, the Son suffering death, and the Father raising the Son: the Paschal Mystery. The Son is the perfect Image of the Father, in eternity and in time, from whom the…

    The Gospels of The New Oxford Annotated Bible aim to tell of the life of Jesus Christ. The authors build the narratives around the Father-Son relationship of God and Jesus because of how much of an impact God’s sacrifice has on Jesus’ ministry. “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life” (John 3:16). Throughout the book of John, Jesus repeatedly says that he is the Son of God, the Son of Man, and God. If Jesus is both the Son of God and God, then it follows that God himself is the Son of Man as well.…

    Paul, in his letter, explains that despite humans being sinners, and the introduction of sin into mankind from free will, God still sent his only son to earth to die for us, opening the gates of heaven. O’Collins’ conclusion on this passage and other Biblical passages that provide evidence into God’s divine love is, “God’s initiative of love clarifies the story of salvation” (Christology, p.300). O’Collins argues that we cannot understand the story of salvation if we don’t find and appreciate that there is evidence showing that God loves us. If we can understand divine love from God then we can reason why Christ is the redeemer of the world. Christ becoming the redeemer was started by God’s act of divine love, Christ being put on the cross and dying for our sins, something Benedict in Deus caritas est also argues.…

    John is a child of God, and John was a bearer in giving power to make other people children of God. As long that you are righteous, God will welcome you as the Lord’s child.

    The Old Testament made it clear that man is unable to save himself by showing the increase of sin in exodus that the Lord eventually needed to wash out. Man was unable to save himself from his sins and the world became a dark place that was void of hope and joy. In the New Testament, God sends his son to save us from evil and by the Lord’s death on the cross, believers are given salvation. Examples of the Lord choosing specific people to follow him is seen. While everybody can come to Christ, Christ also shows that it is through him that we are called and not through our good deeds or works.…
