Heidelberg Catechism 8

I am copying and linking to Lord’s Day 8 of the Heidelberg Catechism (1563).

(Making up for missing last week, being on the road, I post 2 Lord’s Days in one day)

Keep calm and study the heidelberg catechism

This text comes from the Heidelblog.net publication of the Catechism (accessed 5 March 2023).

Q24. How are these Articles divided?

A. Into three parts: the first is of God the Father and our creation; the second of God the Son and our redemption; the third, of God the Holy Spirit  and our sanctification.1

11 Pet 1:2. * I John 5:7.

Q25. Since there is but one Divine Being,1 why do you speak of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit ?

A. Because God has so revealed Himself in His Word,2 that these three distinct persons are the one, true, eternal God.

1Deut 6:4. 2Isaiah 61:1Ps 110:1. Matt  3:16,17 Matt  28:19. I John 5:7.

2 Cor 13:14.
