OUTLINE & VIDEO // Lesson 5: God Exists in Three Persons (Trinity)

Teaching:

  • Lesson 4 teaches that there is only 1 God:
  1. God the Father
  • John 17:1-5 – God the Father is separate than Jesus // knowing Both = eternal life
    • Also: Romans 1:7; James 1:1; 1 Peter 1:3; 2 John 1:3; Jude 1:1
  1. God the Son (Jesus)
  • John 8:56-59; 10:30-39 (compared to Exodus 3:14) – Jesus says, “I am God.”
  • John 1:1,14-18 – Jesus = God
    • Also: Matthew 1:21-23
  • Hebrews 1:8 (also 1:10) – Jesus = God
  • Philippians 2:3-11 (compared to Isaiah 45:22-23) – Jesus = God
  • Jesus = fully God (see above) + fully man (see 1 John) simultaneously 
  1. God the Holy Spirit
  • John 14:15-24 – The Holy Spirit is a Person = Jesus = The Father
  • Acts 5:1-5 – The Holy Spirit = God
    • Acts 13:2 – the Holy Spirit spoke to the group as God
  • Romans 8:9-10 – The Holy Spirit = Jesus Christ
  • Three-In-One (Tri-unity → Trinity)
    • 3 Persons = God
    • Yet only 1 God
    • Thus…3 Persons Co-existent as 1 God
      • Matt. 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14
      • Similar to: spirit + soul + body = 1 human (cf. 1 Thes. 5:23)
      • Gen. 1:26-27; 2:7 – God made mankind in His image: (1) man, (2) woman, (3) spirit
