Paterology: The Study of God the Father In All of His Attributes

33 min | John 17:1-5

John 17:1-5 “These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. 4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.”

Comment: This is the fourth available study in a series on systematic theology; this one addresses the matter of Paterology (Theology Proper) — which is the investigation of God’s biblical teaching concerning God the Father, the First Person of the Triune Godhead. Before this study, I was unaware of Paterology; thus, it was a blessing to be able to hear this introduction to these teachings, especially in light of the Lord Jesus’ very clear purpose and role in revealing the Father to us.
