B 123 – Trinity Sunday (Rom 8:12-17, John 3:1-17)
Rev. Assoc. Prof. Frank Rees, systematic theologian and Baptist minister, joins us to discuss the relational and egalitarian nature of the Trinity. We discuss the various ways the communal, intimate, transcendent, and interdependent nature of God is revealed in Isaiah 6:1-8, Romans 8:12-17, and John 3:1-17. Frank concludes that the triune nature of God reveals “differences that don’t divide” – a challenge and invitation to our way of being as Christians. We mention Jonathan Tran’s article, “The New Black Theology: Retrieving Ancient Sources to Challenge Racism“, Rublev’s Icon, and Frank Maloney’s John Commentary.
