The Holy Trinity
By: Lyndsey Cunninigham
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost – Matthew 28:19
The Bible never uses the word “Trinity”. Webster’s New World Dictionary defines “Trinity” as – a set of three, the union of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in one Godhead.
The Scriptures however refers to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the Godhead:
Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20, Colossians 2:9.
The Scriptures also never refer to the Father the Son and the Holy Sprit as “gods”. When “gods” is used it refers to idols or pagan pantheons. It is extremely significant that the Hebrew adjective of singularity (one) is used with the plural noun Elohim (God).
I and my Father are one. – John 10:30
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord. – Deuteronomy 6:4
The three personalities of the Godhead are however defined throughout the Bible:
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. – 2 Corinthians 13:14
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in the hope of your calling; One Lord, one Faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. – Ephesians 4:4-6
And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is me beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. – Matthew 3: 16-17
