Abstract and Keywords
This article offers a theological treatment of the mystery of God the Father. It considers the real but partial revelation of the Father in the economy of salvation and reflects on two ways of knowing the Father: by way of negation and of analogy. It underscores the eschatological ultimacy of the Father, fecund source of the Son and Holy Spirit and the first principle of all Trinitarian action ad extra. This resituates the theology of Christ and of the Holy Spirit within the context of a Trinitarian and paternal theocentrism.
