THE TRINITY A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
TABLE OF CONTENTS
A surprising number of the great doctrines of the Bible including the doctrine of the Trinity can be clearly examined in the first 18 verses of the Gospel of John. This section of Scripture called the Prologue of the Gospel According to John brings home with great clarity the diety of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, Who is presented by author John as the Second Person of the Triune Godhead:
[JN 1:1]"IN THE BEGINNING THE WORD, JESUS CHRIST WAS
[PHIL 2:5-8]: JESUS CHRIST IS GOD
SUMMARY POINT #1 ON THE TRINITY
1) Herein lies a mystery as revealed in Scripture. God has provided evidence that He does exist as a Triune God; but in the final analysis the belief that God is one God of three Personalities is based on trusting that what God says in His Word is true: Scripture always teaches that there is one God with three distinct Personalities:
God the Father
God the Son God the Holy Spirit
