Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses about post-Reformation Reformed doctrine of the Holy Trinity. Petrus van Mastricht's thoughts on this doctrine in structure and content to pursue the main quest of the relationship of exegesis, doctrine, elenctic, and praxis. The examination of the doctrine of the Holy Trinity reveals that Mastricht gives considerably more attention to the social analogy than to the psychological model. The latter depicts the Son and Spirit as the Wisdom and Love of the one God, thus accentuating divine unity. The teaching of the Holy Trinity should lead to the glory of God and a seeking of the communion of the Three Persons. The description of God the Father defined in the exegetical section is further expounded by Mastricht in the doctrinal part in the context of the offices of the divine economy.
