Under the second flap on the Adult Advent Calendar you find what looks like a Venn Diagram made up of three circles. If you have your reading glasses on you can see a word in each circle: Father, Son, Holy Ghost. We are talking about the trinity. While the full doctrine is from the New Testament, we find indications hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus and what we call the Incarnation.
Take for instance the writings of Agur. Never heard of Agur? He wrote chapter 30 of Proverbs. Fun fact: Solomon did not write all of Proverbs. Additional fun fact: David did not write all of Psalms, but that is a discussion for another day.
Agur has this to say,
(Pro 30:4 KJV) Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?We are talking about creation. Notice that in this discussion we are talking about the Creator, “who hath established” and also His Son.
At this point I don’t think there was any knowledge of the name of the Son. In the Jewish world there was a total denial of whom this could be. We will find out what His name will be as we continue opening flaps.
