What is the trinity?  Is it biblical?  Although the word “trinity” is not mentioned in the bible, the idea of the
trinity is referred to many times.

The word “trinity” refers to God as plural.  The Hebrew word for God is “Elahim” which is plural.

The word “trinity” refers to God as more than one.  God is referred to as the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit.  All three are separate beings or persons but they are the same or equal in 5 important ways.

Before we read about each of these 5 characteristics, let’s read scriptures that refer to God as more than
one.

Genesis 1:26  Then God said, “Let US make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness, and …

Isaiah 48:16  From the time that it was, there am I;  and now the LORD GOD, and HIS SPIRIT, hath sent
ME (JESUS).

2 Corinthians 13:14  May the grace of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, and the love of GOD, and the fellowship of
the HOLY SPIRIT be with you all.

Mathew 3:16-17  JESUS was baptized;  the SPIRIT descended; the FATHER spoke.

Mathew 28:19  Therefore, go and make desciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the FATHER
and of the SON and of the HOLY SPIRIT.

These scriptures clearly state that GOD IS THREE SEPARATE BEINGS OR PERSONS.  THESE PERSONS ARE
THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Next week, although the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are separate spiritual beings, we will read about
the 5 characteristics that make them exactly the same.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
