Is the Trinity Biblical?
Updated: Jun 3
The Trinity is mysterious. It's difficult to understand. More specifically, it's difficult for us to understand how something can be one thing and three things at the same time. As a result, many Christians don't think about the Trinity very much. And others reject the notion of the Trinity altogether.
If we raise the question of whether the Trinity is biblical, some are quick to point out that the word "Trinity" doesn't actually appear in the Bible. (Go ahead and check your concordance.) But what do we do with all the verses of scripture that sound trinitarian? In this sermon, Dr. Matt O'Reilly walks us through some of those verses and explains how they give evidence that God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the Trinity. More than that, we find that the mystery of the Trinity amplifies the beauty of God's perfect love. Watch below or watch it on the Theology Project YouTube Channel (and don't forget to subscribe).
