Summary of Contents

Letter 1
A Plurality in Unity

This is a great stumbling-stone. Messiah is God by nature. Distinct persons in the Godhead. The doctrine is not absurd. Incomprehensibility no objection to faith. Our people believe doctrines though mysterious. A doctrine revealed should be believed. The unity of the Godhead proved. A plurality taught in the Scriptures. The word Elohim used as a plural. Our rabbins greatly perplexed on this subject, and acknowledge a mystery in the word Elohim.

Letter 2
On the Trinity

Proved from passages of Scripture, and from the testimonies of the rabbins. Importance of the subject.

Letter 3
