Heidelberg Catechism – Lord’s Day 8

Question 24: How are these articles divided?

Into three parts: God the Father and our creation; God the Son and our deliverance; and God the Holy Spirit and our sanctification.

***

Question 25: Since there is only one divine being,1 why do you speak of three: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Because that is how God has revealed himself in his Word:2 these three distinct persons are one, true, eternal God.

1 – Deut. 6:4; 1 Cor. 8:4, 6
2 – Matt. 3:16-17; 28:18-19; Luke 4:18 (Isa. 61:1); John 14:26; 15:26; 2 Cor. 13:14; Gal. 4:6; Titus 3:5-6
