Though the word Trinity is not found in the scriptures, it is the teaching of Jesus and implicit in New Testament theology that within the unity of God there is a distinction of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All are one, yet are three.
This icon is based upon the ancient story of Abraham and Sarah who encountered three visitors (Genesis 18). In traditional Christian thought, these three visitors, or angels, are believed to foreshadow contemplation of the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
Often the angel at center is associated with Christ, while the angel on the left is God the Father and the angel on the right is God the Holy Spirit. The posture and placement of the three form a circle symbolic of eternal unity in the Holy Trinity.

As it was in the beginning
and ever shall be
world without end. Amen.
