Q34 Of The Person Of The Son
< previous   Prologue   next >

Prologue   A1   A2   A3  

We next consider the person of the Son. Three names are attributed to the Son -- namely, "Son," "Word," and "Image." The idea of Son is gathered from the idea of Father. Hence it remains for us to consider Word and Image.

Concerning Word there are three points of inquiry:

A1 Whether Word is an essential term in God, or a personal term?

A2 Whether it is the proper name of the Son?

A3 Whether in the name of Word is expressed relation to creatures?
