Of the Person of the Son

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:

  1. Whether Word is an essential term in God, or a personal term?
  2. Whether it is the proper name of the Son?
  3. Whether in the name of Word is expressed relation to creatures?
