THE HOLY TRINITY
BIBLE STUDY Apr 19th 2023
TOPIC: THE HOLY TRINITY
There is only one God, the Creator of the world. But a careful study of the Scriptures will show that
God exists in three persons, that is The Godhead manifesting in three Persons. The doctrine of the
Trinity is deep, and its understanding will enhance our insight into how God the Father, God the Son
and God the Holy Spirit harmoniously do things together as One.
Deut. 6:4, Col. 2:9, Isa. 55:8-9
1.FACTORS THAT VALIDATE THE DOCTRINE OF THE TRINITY
*The Creation of Man uses plural terms; “LET US” MAKE Man in “OUR” image. Gen. 1:26-27
*At the baptism of the Lord Jesus, the Trinity was at work. Matt. 3:13-17
*The Baptismal formula as given by Jesus Himself. Matt. 28:19
*The benediction of grace. 2 Cor.13:14
This is GOD, eternally existing and manifesting Himself to us in three persons.
