Abstract

Over the centuries in a variety of both visual images and words Christians have attempted to communicate the mystery of the Trinity. One classic image features a triangular model with lines crossing between the points inside the triangle and phrases relating to the identity of the three persons. In his Catechisms Luther captures something of this diverse yet unified nature and activity of the Triune God in his explanation of the three parts of the Apostles' Creed. 'I believe that God has created me and everything that exists.' 'I believe that Jesus Christ is my Lord ... he has rescued me when I was lost.' 'I believe that the Holy Spirit has called me to Jesus'. God consists of three distinct persons. The Father is not the Son and so on, but they are united in their creating, rescuing and calling activity
