Essentials of Reformed Doctrine: Lesson 6 (“God's Persons: the Holy Trinity")

Essentials of Reformed Doctrine is a systematic doctrine class aimed at older teenagers, but adapted in Ireland for adults who want to learn all the doctrines of Christianity.

Lesson 6 is "The Holy Trinity."

The main subjects covered in this Lesson are:

Part 1: What it means that God is Triune; how God is one being in three distinct persons; and proof from Scripture for the doctrine.

Part 2: The relationship within the being of God of these three persons; the meaning of "co-eternal," "co-equal'" and co-essential;" the begetting of the Son and the procession of the Spirit.

The LRF runs an adult reformed doctrine class in which we work through the Essentials of Reformed Doctrine catechism booklet published by the PRCA. Below you will find the lesson outlines based on Lesson 6.

Each lesson outline comes as a handy PDF formatted to be printed as a single double-sided page with narrow margins.
