Seven Spirits, Seven Sisters

​Jesus holds seven stars. They are the angels of the seven churches (Revelation 1:20). For ancient readers and hearers, “seven stars” would evoke a number of associations – the seven planets, the seven stars of Ursa Major, and the seven stars that make up the Pleiades.

The last makes a great deal of sense. You can do what I did: Google to find an ancient depiction of the Pleiades; then Google to find a map of the seven churches; note the … Read More

Jacob and the Stone

When he first arrives in Harran, at Paddan-Aram, the home of Laban his uncle, Jacob sees a well.

Wells are mentioned frequently in Genesis. Twice Hagar finds a well in the wilderness (Genesis 16:14; 21:19).  Philistines seize Abraham’s well (21:22-34), and Abraham’s chief servant finds a wife for Isaac at a well (24:10-27).

About Trinity House

Trinity House believes the church, the body of Christ empowered by the Spirit, to be God’s chief human agent for the transformation of human society.

We envision a world full of churches that teach the Christian Scriptures as the Word of God in all their power and beauty; churches where the people of God sing Psalms, hymns, and songs in lively worship and eat and drink together each week around the Lord’s table; churches that live in obedience to the Lord Jesus and practice discipline together under the leadership of their pastors; churches whose members share in the mission of the Son and Spirit to bring about God’s kingdom of peace, justice, and love.

We equip our students for imaginative ministry and foster the development of their particular talents. We provide a context for our scholars and teachers to study the Scriptures, engage in theological research, instruct and mentor other ministers, teachers, and Christian laity, and pursue publication of their own work, all for the purposes of supporting the church’s work of teaching, worship, and cultural renewal.
