Catholic of the Year 2000 Contest 

Question #11:

The existence of the Blessed Trinity was not fully revealed until Jesus came to earth.




Reason for that answer:

Although there are several intimations of the Trinity in the Old Testament, it was not yet clearly revealed that God is three Persons, all equal yet distinct. This was first revealed by Jesus Himself.

Objection: But didn’t God exist as a Trinity from eternity?

Reply: Yes, but the statement above is about revelation (to us), not about whether God is a Trinity or not.
