Many skeptics have made the claim that the bible does not mention the Trinity and that it is a man made idea that was not something that Jesus preached. This article is dedicated to showing scripture that points towards the Trinity.
Scripture Supporting the Trinity
But for us, There is one God, the Father, by whom all things were created, and for whom we live. And there is one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things were created, and through whom we live.1 Corinthians 8:6
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.2 Corinthians 13:14
For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body.Collasians 2:9
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.John 1:14
“The Father and I are one.”John 10:30
“Look! The virgin will conceive a child! She will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel, which means ‘God is with us.’”Matthew 1:23
16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate,[a who will never leave you. 17 He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you.John 14:16-17
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.[a 2 The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters.Genesis 1:1-2
So we have these three witnesses[a— 8 the Spirit, the water, and the blood—and all three agree.1 John 5:7-8
The evidence for the Trinity can be seen through these verses. Christianity is monotheistic and God presents himself through God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
1 John 5:7-8 KJV
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Colossians 2:9 KJV
It Is Written, ‘Godhead’.
So, why not call it what is written?
Romans 1:20, Acts 17:29
Hi, Can anyone please help me understand how can God possibly die? If God dies, he is not God. If God cannot die then did He pretend a lie? But, God does not lie!
Also, what exactly does the following scripture mean?
1 Corinthians 15:24-28 NLT
“After that the end will come, when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under his authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority.) Then, when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.”
God will not die! Can you specify your confusion?
If God cannot die and you are saying that Jesus is God then either Jesus is not God because he died or at least pretended to die thereby lying to everyone.
Also, in 1 Cor 15 we are told “God has put all things under his authority.” (Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority.) Then, when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.” – doesn’t this confirm that Jesus is not God?
Jesus is God. Jesus is also a man. He is divine.
Well that’s hardly any sort of reply. You offer no explanation, no proof against my reasoned argument and scriptural evidence. Seems like you are just out there to mislead people into false worship.
Thanks for absolutely nothing. So much for your apologetics.
It is the truth.
No, absolutely not – I have given an utterly unambiguous scriptural defence. You have not provided any rebuttal which obviously shows you have zero scriptural knowledge and are there merely to promote some dogma.
John 1:1 ESV
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:14 ESV
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
Isaiah 9:6 ESV
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
These verses show us that Jesus is God.
I have asked a specific question to which you have still provided no answer (God cannot die, if you claim Jesus is God you need to explain how he could possibly die if he is supposed to be immortal or did God just decide to mislead people?) .
I have then quoted scripture which clearly differentiates between God and Jesus and once again you haven’t provided any explanation.
I have asked the question and you have not been able to provide any answer yet!
Hey, this is one of the mysteries of Christianity. I believe that since God is all powerful he can control literally everything. If he wants to die then he could. Jesus Christ chose to die on the cross to bear our sins, and since He has all authority in heaven and on earth, He can die if He wants to. I hope this helps
I think your confusion about God dying stems from equivocating the word “die” in the sense of undergoing physical death with “die” in the sense of ceasing to exist. God can and did enter into humanity and underwent physical death, but he did not at any point “die” in the sense that he ceased to exist. An analogy can be seen in the Christian belief that when we die physically, we do not actually die in the sense that we no longer exist. But we still speak of it in those terms. (A little beside the point, but it should also be pointed out that Jesus ultimately defeated physical death.)
I am sorry to say that the Scripture you quoted would require a more lengthy response than I have time to give at the moment. But if you would like a reply, please let me know and I will get to it when I am able to.
I noticed from a later reply of yours that your question about the Scripture you quoted revolved around the notion that it differentiates between God and Jesus. To an extent, I agree. But the differentiation is between God the Father and Jesus the Son. This is consistent with trinitarian belief, which does not claim that the Trinity consists of three persons who are actually one person, or three gods that are actually one God, but *three persons who are one God.* This is no more contradictory than claiming that three corners are one triangle.
Furthermore, we see this same formula in other New Testament Scriptures, in which the writers go to painstaking lengths to try to describe Jesus as God while drawing a distinction between the Father and the Son. They do this by refering to “God the Father” and “Jesus Christ the Lord,” and then applying Old Testament proof texts to Jesus in which “Lord” clearly refers to God. William Lane Craig points out:
A beautiful example of this is found in Romans 10:9,13. Paul says, “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” This is the confession that is required to be a Christian in the New Testament church: Jesus is Lord. Then in verse 13 comes the Old Testament proof text. Quoting now from Joel 2:32: “For ‘everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.’” They take this Old Testament passage about Yahweh from Joel and apply that to Jesus Christ and say if you confess that Jesus is Lord, then, just as the Scriptures promise, everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord will be saved.
