God (Trinity), Doctrine of
- The doctrine of God is central to Christian theology. In fact, the term theology in the broad sense means the study of God and is not restricted to Christianity. Usually Christian theology is understood more specifically to include reflection on the nature of God, on God's self-disclosure in creation and especially in Christ as witnessed to by the Scriptures, on God's ongoing interaction with the world through the Holy Spirit, and on the consummation of God's purpose beyond time. It is quite appropriate therefore to say that Christian theology begins and ends with the doctrine of God.
God the Known and God the Unknown
- A melting pot of Yeshua of Nazareth's (a.k.a. Jesus Christ's) personal teachings, the teachings of Paul, the teachings about Jesus by his disciples and by various groups in primitive Christianity, and the inclusion of Pagan Greek philosophy led to the development of the largest religion in the world: Christianity.
- Jesus of Nazareth (c. 5 BC/BCE – c. 30 AD/CE), also referred to as Jesus Christ or simply Jesus, is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christian denominations venerate him as God the Son incarnated and believe that he rose from the dead after being crucified.
- A thing’s name defines it and clarifies what we think of and helps us talk about it. But a
person’s is much more than mere definition: it reveals identity, character, and relationship. To
many, God is just another concept with a label: Deity, Creator, Judge. But to the believer, he is
the single most important person one can know. And we want to know — we need to know —
what is his name?
How has God introduced himself to us, and what does this reveal about his identity? What do
God’s names reveal about his character and the way he has acted throughout history? And how
does our use of God’s names help us relate to him?
This study assumes God is more than a concept or a construct, and searches for the answer:
How should we address God?
- Open Theism is the thesis that, because God loves us and desires that we freely choose to reciprocate His love, He has made His knowledge of, and plans for, the future conditional upon our actions.

The Original Teachings of Jesus Christ
The Plurality Study
- The following study is an interesting examination of theophanies. A theophany is an appearance of God. God appears in the Old Testament in different ways: as an angel of the Lord (Acts 7:30-32; Exodus 3:2; Judges 2:1), apparently in physical form (Gen. 3:8; Exodus 24:9-11), in visions and dreams (Num. 12:6-8), and in flame (Judges 13:20-21). However, there are verses that say that you can't see God: Exodus 33:20; John 1:18). If this is so, then is there a contradiction in the Bible? No, there isn't.
