Well, this is where we'll start I suppose. I have sent a number of people out to gather info on the trinity for me, and I'm plowing through my Bible and a topical concordance, and an encyclopedia of Bible knowledge... all to try and wrap my mind around this concept.
So far I've established that the connection between the Father, the Son,a nd the Holy Ghost is in that they are all God. However, each has a different purpose and nature. While all are righteous, they all use it to accomplish different purposes.
God the Father, being the Creator, uses His righteousness for judgment (Job 21:30, Proverbs 11:4, Matthew 7:2) and establishment (Genesis 1:1, Genesis 8:21-22, Exodus 20:1-17.) He is the Begining and the End... etc etc.
God the Son, being the Messiah, uses His righteousness for teaching (Matthew 7:28-29) and salvation (Romans 5:8, Romans 6:23, Romans 10:17, John 6:47). He is the Lamb that died and rose again so that we couold have eternal life.
God the Spirit, being the Comforter, uses His righteousness for correction (Romans 8, 1 Corinthians 2:11) and... comforting (Romans 5:5, John 14:16-17). He is the Spirit of God in us, that not only gives us peace but also gives us understanding.
But how do you see the Trinity of Righteousness?
