  1. The Trinity in all the Bible

    My "thing" is developing the message of the Trinity all through the Bible. We need a hermeneutic that will explain what God was saying in the Old Testament as well as the New Testament. I've been working on this for years, and a picture has developed about the Father/Son theme running all the way from Creation to Revelation. You can find more on this subject in these resources:
