Q. I’ve got a question. Recently I have talked to people who say the trinity doesn’t exist. I believe in the trinity, however I’m trying to find scripture which explains it and backs it up. Can you help?
A. You won’t find any specific Scripture explaining the Trinity, but the fact that there is one is evident throughout. All three were present at and involved in the Creation, the Exodus, your salvation, and most other important events in the Bible. All three dwell within you. Jesus claimed on several occasions that He and the Father are one and the same. It’s what got Him executed. At His baptism the Holy Spirit is shown to descending to Him.(Matt. 3:16) The language He used at the cross (My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?) indicates that He was addressing the other two members of the Trinity (Matt 27:46). It’s one of those things, like the eternal nature of God, that the Bible never explains, but requires you to believe.
