Trinitarian Foundations of Theology

The foundations of theology are thus trinitarian: The Father, through the Son as Logos, imparts himself to his creatures in the Spirit. Theologians also distinguish God’s own trinitarian self-knowledge (archetypal) from the revealed knowledge accommodated to human understanding (ectypal) (ed. John Bolt, Herman Bavinck, Reformed Dogmatics: Abridged in One Volume, 50).
