Begetting and Fromness

For him "fromness" does not imply subordination. What these metaphors speak of, he argues, is the "intimacy" of the Father and the Son and their indelible differentiation-one begets, the other is begotten, one sends, the other is sent. He writes that one is not greater or less because "one is the Father and the other the Son; one is the begetter, the other begotten; the first is the one from whom the sent one is; the other is the one who is from the sender."
