The aim of this paper is to analyse the metaphorical and metonymical conceptual representations of God in The New Testament. The notion of God causes various problems since God is understood as One in Three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The idea of the Holy Trinity escapes human logic and natural reasoning. The metaphors and metonymies used for the conceiving of God in The New Testament form a complex system of schemata, mediating between the indescribable reality and language. Because of the transcendent nature of God, classifying some of the schemata as metaphor or metonymy is problematic.
