Chapter 5: Mysteries: The Trinity
Mysteries: The Trinity
Film Focus Point: NET New York channel’s video on the Trinity featuring explanations by priests and theologians and with relevant artwork. The video discusses our understanding of the Trinity as a central doctrine and how this is represented in the Bible, the Catechism, and in the writings of the saints. (Note: This video was used earlier in chapter four. It might be good to divide it into two halves, showing the first for chapter four and the second with this chapter.)
