The Divine Trinity

divine-trinity“Only through understanding the Trinity can we gain a just idea of God; … [f]or us to see the nature of the divine Trinity in full perspective, the explanation of the Trinity needs to be divided into points as follows:

  1. There is a divine Trinity, which is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  2. These three, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, are three essential components of one God. They are one the way our soul, our body, and the things we do are one.
  3. This Trinity did not exist before the world was created. It developed after the world was created, when God became flesh. It came into existence in the Lord God the Redeemer and Savior Jesus Christ.”

From True Christianity, Volume 1, §163, by Emanuel Swedenborg (Jonathan S. Rose, translator), Swedenborg Foundation, West Chester, PA, 2010.
