The emergence of devotion to Jesus in the early church: The grass-roots derivation of the trinity.
Hunt, Anne. (2005) The emergence of devotion to Jesus in the early church: The grass-roots derivation of the trinity. Australian Ejournal of Theology.
Our familiarity as Christians with Christian faith's conviction that Jesus is divine and that God is triune tends to dull our appreciation of how utterly revolutionary and radical that development in the God-consciousness of Jesus' disciples really was. They, like Jesus, were Jewish. Faithful to their tradition, they held an exclusivist monotheistic notion of God and of devotion to God. Yet, their experience of Jesus resulted in a truly amazing change in their God-consciousness and a radical reinterpretation of their faith in the one God, that was eventually to come to expression in the Christian doctrine of the Trinity.
