Podcast Throwback! Eavesdrop on the Trinity: Prosopological Exegesis

Have you ever wished you could eavesdrop on the divine Persons of the Trinity as they speak with one another?

In this episode of the Credo Podcast, Matthew Barrett and Matthew Bates explore prosopological exegesis. They discuss this ancient reading technique employed by the biblical authors and then picked up by the early church fathers.

Barrett and Bates explore the way the New Testament authors interpret the Old Testament, the Psalms in particular, and conclude that the trinitarian dialogue says something crucial about each person’s eternal origin.
