Trinity Sunday - May 27th, 2018

THE HOLY TRINITY

The Bible teaches us that God is "Triune." "Triune" is composed of two Latin words--"Tri" (meaning "three") and "Une" (meaning "one"). The word "Trinity" is derived from "triune" and also means "three-one."

Though the word "Trinity" does not occur in the Bible, the teaching of the "three-one"-ness of God is. The Bible simply teaches that there is one God, but there are three persons in this one God. The Father, the Bible teaches, is God. The Son, also, is God. So is the Holy Spirit God. But there are not three Gods, but one God.

The Bible teaches the Doctrine of the Trinity in numerous places. The Old Testament Book of Genesis teaches this doctrine in the account of Creation in Genesis 1-2. St. Paul and others in the New Testament also speak of God--Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Jesus taught the Trinity in Matthew 28:19-20. In the Gospel of John, Jesus often mentions God, the Father as well as the God, the Holy Spirit. By also claiming Himself to be God, Jesus Himself teaches us this doctrine in a most convincing way.


Augsburg Confession: “There is one divine essence, which is called and which is truly God, and … there are three persons in this one divine essence, equal in power and alike eternal: God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. All three are one divine essence, eternal, without division, without end, of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness, one creator and preserver of all things visible and invisible.”
