The Christian Doctrine of the Trinity, the Church’s Self-inflicted Wound

Responding to a caller, Rabbi Tovia Singer explores how the thoroughly monotheistic Christian movement that first broke away from Judaism rapidly transformed itself into a religion that embraced the notion that God had a son who was both fully human and divine, and a member of a three-part godhead. Why did it stray so far from Judaism, and eventually espouse the pagan notion that there were multiple deities that were incorporated into one Trinity? In order to grasp how, when, and why Christians came to regard Jesus as coequal with God, Rabbi Singer examines the Christian Church from its inauspicious beginnings among the few followers of Jesus in Jerusalem to the heart of the empire, the city of Rome.
