Q[33] Of The Person Of The Father
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]  

We now consider the persons singly; and first, the Person of the Father, concerning Whom there are four points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether the Father is the Principle?

A[2] Whether the person of the Father is properly signified by this name "Father"?

A[3] Whether "Father" in God is said personally before it is said essentially?

A[4] Whether it belongs to the Father alone to be unbegotten?
