The doctrine of the Trinity is unique to Christian theology and arguably one of its most foundational claims. The aim of this course is to delve into a biblical and theological understanding of the Trinity and discuss how this understanding applies to life and ministry. Students will be challenged to consider theological ideas such as: the self-revelation of God to humanity; the distinct personal roles within the triune relationship; and how these personal roles are seen in the life, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus. Finally, insight will be offered regarding life and ministry in light of the learning.
Please note: As this is a Level 6 credit course it cannot be accredited to an NZDipCS Level 5. For those of you wanting to complete the Level 5 Diploma only Level 5 courses/credits will count towards the completion of that diploma
THIS COURSE WILL EXPLORE:
- Where do we find the Trinity in Scripture?
- How did the early church arrive at their understanding of God as triune?
- What does Jesus reveal about the Trinity through his life, death, resurrection and ascension?
- How does the triune God interact with humanity?

LECTURER | GRAEME CHAMBERLAIN
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I am married to an amazing wife. I'm an introvert who loves to see people reaching their full potential in their church and community. Something I particularly enjoy about the church is where the theology is rich but is also communicated in such a way that is simple and practical. I am an avid fan of American Football, basketball, ice hockey, rugby league, and Formula 1 (basically anything that involves competition). Reading is a passion of mine and I make my way through a large range of books from theology to fiction.
Being a part of a student's discipleship journey is a great honour and privilege and I love that I get to do this on a daily basis with people.
