Whenever you make a change to one, you have to make a change to the others in order to balance everything out. You can achieve this effect by opening up the aperture. But when you do that, you also need to change your shutter speed or ISO. Bruce Guenter What makes theses three a Trinity?
They felt the gray-bearded man and the dove could not do justice to the unfathomable mystery of the triune God. When he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them, and bowed himself to the earth …[Abraham] set [cakes, curds, milk, and a calf he prepared] before them; and he stood by them under the tree while they ate.
In the background is the house of Abraham as well as an oak tree that stands behind the three guests. While the icon depicts this scene in the Old Testament, Rublev used the biblical episode to make a visual representation of the Trinity that fit within the strict guidelines of the Russian Orthodox Church.
First of all, the three angels are identical in appearance corresponding to the belief of the oneness of God in three Persons. However, each angel is wearing a different garment, bringing to mind how each Person of the Trinity is distinct.
The fact that Rublev depicts the Trinity using angels is also a reminder of the nature of God, who is pure spirit. The angels are shown from left to right in the order that we profess our faith in the Creed: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The second angel is the most familiar as he is wearing the clothes typically worn by Jesus in traditional iconography.
The oak tree behind the angel reminds us of the tree of life in the Garden of Eden as well as the cross upon which Christ saved the world from the sin of Adam. The third angel is wearing a blue garment divinityas well as a green vestment over the top.
Green is also the liturgical color worn on Pentecost in the Orthodox and Byzantine tradition.
The two angels on the right of the icon have a slightly bowed head toward the other, illustrating the fact that the Son and Spirit come from the Father. In the center of the icon is a table that resembles an altar. Placed on the table is a golden bowl or chalice that contains the calf Abraham prepared for his guests and the central angel appears to be blessing the meal.
All of that combined reminds us of the sacrament of the Eucharist. While not the most direct representation of the Holy Trinity, it is one of the most profound visualizations ever produced.
It remains in the Orthodox and Byzantine traditions the primary way to depict the Triune God. The icon is even held in high esteem in the Roman Catholic Church and is frequently used by catechists to teach others about the mystery of the Trinity.
The Trinity is a mystery and will always be so while we are on earth.Trinity Presbyterian Church has a rich history of displaying works of art in the sanctuary. Master artists, local artists, and collections of Trinity's members have been a part of displays at Trinity.
Not by altering God-revealed truth about the Trinity. Not by thinking we need to “help” God with his image. Over the years, I’ve witnessed thousands of women come to a place of healing and wholeness through the redeeming power of the unvarnished foolishness of the gospel.
The realization of the new church was accompanied by the German photographers Joachim Brohm and Valentina Seidel with a series of artistic photographs and condensed into the Trinity art book project.

(3)Hold up the core and go through the same routine (the core contains the sees which enable the apple to reproduce). Discuss how each part (the skin, flesh and core) had a different job to do, but they are all part of the apple—three parts to one apple.
The apple cannot survive without each part.
