Fred Sanders on the Trinity

Nice summary statement worthy of contemplation:

“[T]he doctrine of the Trinity is more than just another doctrine on the list of true things we have been taught by God about God. It is God’s self-revelation by way of presence in a more direct, intense, and personal way. . . . In the fullness of time, God did not give us facts about himself, but gave us himself  in the person of the Father who sent, the Son who was sent, and the Holy Spirit who was poured out. These events were accompanied by verbally inspired explanatory words; but the latter depend on the former.” (Fred Sanders, The Triune God, p. 40; italics mine for emphasis)
