The Theology of “The Child”
The Trinitarian Plan and Promise for Children: A Biblical Narrative
Children are a gift from God…this is the declarative truth put forth in Psalm 127:3. The specificity of this verse is not as a treatise to the actual procreation and reproduction, but rather as a reatise for why humanity comes into being only because of “multiplying” and that when babies are born, humanity is reflecting God’s good creation. This is further affirmed in the understanding that the Triune God’s intention has always been to grow through fruitful multiplication, His created beings, made in His image, over and over again as He declares in genesis, to make humans in “our image”, bearing out God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
