Jewish Roots for the Trinity

Peter Escalante showed me this wonderful page on The Jewish Roots of Eastern Christian Mysticism. There’s so much good stuff there, but I can recommend Michel Barnes’ on the Holy Spirit as a good place to get started (if you’ve got the time).

I’m not sure about all of these writers’ views of Scripture, but I think that they are right to criticize the assumption that there was only one Judaism and that it always had the same doctrine of God. I find the whole project of Old Testament Trinitarianism fascinating, especially coming from the academy.

The implications of all this on the early church is pretty huge too, and I’d like to go ahead and say once again that I no longer know anything.
