Images for The Holy Trinity Sunday

Genesis 1: 1- 2:4a                In the beginning…
Psalm 8                                    When I look to the heavens, the work of your fingers…
2 Corinthians 13: 11-13    The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God…
Matthew 28: 16-20            Go therefore and make disciples of all nations…
 

OK, a lot of directions that can be gone on a Sunday like this artwise…talking specifically about the Trinity there are images like:

Icon of the Council of Nicea

Since the Council of Nicea is where the language of God as Trinity became the official doctrine of the church in 325
