|As Christians we are often
asked "where is the Trinity in the Bible?". While there are
many great dissertations on this foundational
Christian doctrine, here is a very short study that I pray will help believers better
understand their own faith and also better equip them to defend it to seekers. 1PE
3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to
every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:
GOD IS ONE.
DEU 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The
LORD our God is one LORD: DEU 6:5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all
thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
THE FATHER (LORD) IS GOD.
ISA 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith
the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and
understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall
there be after me. ISA 43:11 I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no
ISA 44:6 Thus saith the LORD the
King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last;
and beside me there is no God.
THE SON (JESUS) IS GOD.
JOH 1:1 In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
JOH 10:30 I and my
Father are one. JOH 10:31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him
(The Jews knew that Jesus claim
in vs. 30 was that "He was God". Ergo, they wanted to stone him, the
appropriate scriptural punishment for such blasphemy.)
COL 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of
the Godhead bodily.
THE HOLY SPIRIT (HOLY GHOST) IS GOD.
ACT 5:3 But Peter said, Ananias, why
hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back
part of the price of the land? ACT 5:4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own? and after
it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine
heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
GOD IS ONE.
EXO 20:2 I am the LORD thy
God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
EXO 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
If one truly
believes that the Bible is Gods Word, and that it is without error and true and
trustworthy in all aspects, then one must believe each/all the following.
That God is one.
That the Father is God.
That the Son (Jesus) is God.
That the Holy Spirit (Ghost) is
The only logical way to reconcile
these seemingly contradictory teachings is to understand God as One God, eternally
existent in Three Persons. The Doctrine of the Trinity. God Three in One.
Never forget MAT 19:26 But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is
impossible; but with God all things are possible.
soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened,
and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. And a voice from
heaven said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased." (MAT
For there are three that bear record
in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (1 JOHN 5:7
