Who Does What?

Studying the Trinity is like trying to map the surface of the Earth on a 2D surface. Flattening equals distortion. The neurons of my brain understand “on” and “off” – they can’t process “on and off.”

So when Jesus says that the Son chooses whom to reveal the Father to in Matthew 11:27, and that the Father has given those who were his to Jesus in John 17:6, I’m naturally confused. What is this entity?

And yet, the simple words of Jesus tell the whole story: “All mine are yours, and yours are mine.” We were always in the mind of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three persons of the Trinity had complete foreknowledge, complete sovereignty in election.
