The founding paschal narrative in the New Testament and the liturgy of the Eucharist continue to afford fresh insights into the mystery of the Trinity. This article first re-visits this mystery as gleaned from these two privileged sources. Having examined the hypostatic traits manifest there in the paschal drama, notably the self-giving, self-surrendering love, which characterizes the trinitarian communion and the receptivity, obedience, and Fatherwardness of the Son, the article proceeds to consider some of the challenges that these trinitarian soundings pose to contemporary theology, in particular, for feminist theologies and the values espoused therein.
