1. In human man Jesus we encounter the full revelation of the Trinitarian God. Therefore humanity as such is only authentically at home in the Trinitarian life of God. The Triune God is God in and for humanness.
2. In that the man Jesus is the presence of the Trinitarian God to the world we must say that the Triune life of God always and eternally is identical to what we see translated into the history of the world in Jesus.
3. When human persons encounter Jesus what occurs is fundamentally an experience of hospitality. Therefore a fundamental characterization we are able to make about the quality of God’s internal life is that it is a life of hospitality.
4. When human persons encounter Jesus we kill him. Therefore the Trinitarian God’s hospitality has the character of complete and total self-expenditure for others.
5. When human persons encounter Jesus they do so predominately in the context of table-fellowship. Therefore the life of the Trinitiarian God is best understood as the realm of feasting.
6. When human persons encounter Jesus they are directed to the Father. Therefore the Trinitarian God is God in the deferral of the divine persons to one another. The Trinitarian God is the God whose life eschews competitiveness and self-assertion.
7. When human persons encounter Jesus they do so through the Holy Spirit. Therefore the fellowship of persons with Triune God is never a given object which we can possess, but always a free and apocalyptic gift which comes to us from outside ourselves in unpredictable and dynamic ways.
