“The mystery of the Holy Trinity is the most fundamental of our faith. On it everything else depends and from it everything else derives.” Catholiceducation.org But the apostle Paul said in his letter to the church at Rome that we can understand the godhead from the things that are made, in chapter 1. It’s not an all-male Trinity, says Dr. Richard Ruhling, author of a new book, The Greatest Story Never Told; offering an alt-view.
God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” The word for God is elohim. It is the plural form of eloha, feminine root. If we are made in their image, male and female, They are male and female, and we can confirm this by other passages. “Jerusalem above is the Mother of us all.” 1
When we hear Jerusalem, we think of a city, but a city cannot be a mother, but a city can be named for important persons. Jerusalem is the name of our heavenly Mother and further evidence that she is God is seen in Isaiah 37 when Sennacherib beat on the city gates and said Israel’s God could not deliver them.
King Hezekiah sent a message to Isaiah asking if there was any hope for them. The answer came back, “The Daughter of Jerusalem has shaken her head at you whom you have blasphemed.” 2 Blasphemy is speaking against God. The Daughter of Jerusalem was God. That night, 185,000 Assyrians were dead outside the city.
Of 1000 songs that Solomon wrote, only one is in the Bible. The Song of Solomon may not be about him, but about Israel’s true and wisest king of Israel, their Messiah. In Song of Songs, He says, “My Sister, my love, my dove…”3 She was the dove that descended on Him at His baptism and gave Him wisdom to answer rabbis who didn’t see the prophetic role of God paying the price for man’s sin as the Lamb of God dying for us,4 and announced as the Lamb of God by the Jewish prophet, John.5
Wisdom is personified as She in Proverbs 8 where She is brought forth (Hebrew word that includes the meaning of childbirth) before anything else was created and “was brought up with Him, I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him.”6
If we can believe in a truth stated 7 times that we are in Their image, male and female, then we can see evidence that They are male and female so that God “so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son” and Mary is not the true mother of God, for she acted as a surrogate to give Christ a human nature like we have7—he could be hungry, thirsty, weary, etc.
If Christ had yielded to temptation any time (I’m sure Mary Magdalene was an attractive woman), but if He sinned, He would have died on the cross with no resurrection that all disciples risked their lives to proclaim.
There is more evidence for Her in Revelation where John saw “One like the Son of man…gird about the paps with a golden girdle, Rev 1:13. Christ became a man; She took the form of the Spirit as in Rom 8:26, Rev 2,3 but in Rev 22:17, “The Spirit and the Bride say Come…”
The Greek kai is a conjunction that means “that is to say.” So “the Spirit—that is to say the Bride says Come, and we can be guests at their wedding as shown in “The Greatest Story Never Told!”

Bio: Richard Ruhling is a retired MD, MPH who was board-certified in Internal Medicine before teaching Health Science at Loma Linda University. He says medical care is not healthcare—it has so little to do with healthy habits that can add an extra 10 years (UCLA study) but Adverse Drug Reactions cause illness.
