This week, question 3:

How many persons are there in God?

There are three persons in the one true and living God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are the same in substance, equal in power and glory.

We continue stealing (and again, that’s a good thing!) from Westminster. This is basically the same as SC6 (and LC9). Hard to go wrong there.

The accompanying verse is the benediction in 2 Cor 13:14 “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” Probably good not to lean on the Johannine Comma. I’ll throw the Great Commission in there as well.

Commentary by Richard Baxter, prayer by Heinrich Bullinger, and the guy on the video doesn’t look familiar to me, but he’s Young, and he looks kinda restless. The video is really a pretty good overview of the Trinity, but I’ll be supplementing also with this video (which my boys already know and love).

    Oopx, I didn’t mean that video; that’s good too, but I meant this one

    I found the commentary to be not too terribly helpful, and the prayer was not very prayer-y, but more like a bit of commentary terminated with the word “amen”. Kevin de Young’s video I thought was quite good though.

    And the fam is doing quite well with memorization, which is good. The only problem is with near-misses from SC language.
