Torrance: Trinity, Love, and Communion

The love of the Father to the Son, and the Son to the Father, involving the reciprocal knowledge of the Father and the Son, Son to the Father and over to us. Now, the whole Christian message is, the staggering Gospel, that in and through Christ and in his Spirit, we are given freely to share in the overflow of the inner communion of love in the being of God, and to partake of the inner reciprocal relations of knowing in God himself. And, in some sense…what it means to partake in the reciprocal relations in the divine being”
