In four brief scenes and a concluding episode, the narrative defines and illustrates the essentials of holiness, touching on virtually every aspect of the theme.

    Tertullian, important early Christian theologian, polemicist, and moralist who, as the initiator of ecclesiastical Latin, was instrumental in shaping the vocabulary and thought of Western Christianity. Knowledge of the life of Tertullian is based almost wholly on documents written by men living.   True holiness – the kind we read about on nearly every page of the Bible – speaks of God’s beauty and wholeness. To define holiness in terms of sin – eg: sin avoidance – is like defining the sun in terms of darkness. God is love and God is holy, but under the old covenant love and holiness became redefined or re-anchored on us.

    Tertullian () was an early Christian writer from Carthage. Though conservative in his worldview, Tertullian originated new theological concepts and advanced the development of early Church doctrine. He is perhaps most famous for being the first writer in Latin known to use the term trinity (Latin: trinitas). Tertullian, son of a Roman centurion from North Africa, was born around A.D. He received a good education in literature and thetoric and probably practiced law for a while before being converted to Christianity around the year A.D.
