Abstract

Robert W. Jenson claims that his doctrine of the Trinity is a revisionary metaphysics. He asserts that the Trinity is identified by and with the biblical narrative. It is his answer to the problem of the death of God. I argue that the biblical narrative is crucial to Jenson’s doctrine of the Trinity because it denotes God’s temporal reality. Biblical narrative is a story of God’s promise. It really depicts the triune reality. I argue that Jenson attempts to establish the meaningfulness of theology through this integration of language, reality, and time. But God’s story is eventually made identical to the totality of historical reality. Because Jenson prioritizes metaphysics over linguistic communication, he needs to develop a theology of God’s consciousness to defend the triunity of God. Eventually, his doctrine of the Trinity is paradoxically put at risk of becoming modalism.
