New Credo Podcast: What Does Simplicity Have to do With Trinity? Simply Trinity (Part 2)
In this episode of the Credo Podcast, Matthew Barrett fields questions from Samuel Parkison about his new book, Simply Trinity: The Unmanipulated Father, Son and Spirit (Baker).
They discuss how central the doctrine of divine simplicity is for a proper doctrine of the Trinity. Along these lines, Barrett defines eternal generation and shows why the Son’s eternal generation from the Father is nonnegotiable for biblical, orthodox trinitarianism. Barrett also explains how eternal generation influences our understanding of the gospel and salvation itself.
