The Trinity where there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

Matthew 3:16-17; Genesis 1:16; Matthew 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; John 14:16-17; John 10:28-30

Our short study is set out easily for you to get more into the Bible. The illustration that goes about various sermons on the Trinity where people try explaining the trinity as “Water in liquid form as a vapor being steam or as a solid being ice.” To get a proper understanding there are many scriptures in the New Testament to show you.

When we read out Bible, we see three different names with all of them are God.

God the Father
God the Son
God the Holy Spirit

1 The word Trinity
The word Trinity isn’t found in the Bible, but it is a major doctrine with its idea and truth, written throughout the Bible.

2 The name of God

The name of our God in the Old Testament Hebrew scripture is Elohim which is a plural noun, plural means three or more. It is mentioned 500 times in Moses books, the Pentateuch which is the first five books of the Bible.

In the creation of Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God Elohim created the heaven and the earth. It is interesting that God didn’t create God the son and God the Holy Spirit, they co-existed from before creation began.

In the creation of man in Genesis 1:26-27 26 And God Elohim said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… 27 So God Elohim created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. So, God in the unity of the trinity created us humans in Gods perfect image. Beautiful isn’t it!

3 Trinity in the Old Testament
Interesting looking at Genesis 2:4the first reference the LORD God, notice LORD is in capitals. This is the personal name of God, in Hebrew it is Yĕhovah and English it is Jehovah used 6,519 in KJV scriptures.

Look at Genesis 11:5-7 concentrate on verses 5 and 7, this passage is on the tower of Babel where the whole earth was one language and the people came to the land of Shinar and made bricks to make a tower that would reach into heaven.

 In verse 5 the LORD Yĕhovah comes down to see the city and tower and sees nothing will be restrained from them, nothing is impossible for them to create.

Look at verse 7 Go to or come, let us go down, you see the word US this is Jesus, and the Holy Spirt that God is speaking to calling them to come down and confound or confuse the people’s language and scatter them abroad.

So we see.

Tri means Three
Unity means one
God is three in one.
