Today we move on to section two in Zanchi’s confession of the Holy Trinity, which asserts both the full deity of all three Persons as well as the unity of the Godhead.
II. Ita unamquamque personam verum esse per se Deum, ut tamen non sint tres dii.
Ita enim credimus atque e sacris literis didicimus Patrem per se verum et perfectum esse Deum, Filium item per se Deum et Spiritum sanctum per se Deum, ut tamen non multi sint, sed unus tantum Iehova, a quo omnia, per quem omnia et in quem omniam.
II. That each person is of himself true God, but in such a way that there are not three gods.
For we believe and have learned from the sacred writings that the Father is of himself true and perfect God, the Son likewise [is] of himself [true and perfect God], and the Holy Spirit [is] of himself [true and perfect] God, but in such a way that they are not many [gods], but only one Jehovah, from whom [are] all things, through whom [are] all things, and in whom [are] all things. 1
