Biblically Thinking About The Trinity - Download
MANY CHRISTIANS can’t understand, much less defend, the “Trinity.” Yet this is exactly the way the Bible presents God. Genesis 1:1 states, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The word used for “God” in this statement is the Hebrew word elohim, which literally means “gods.” It occurs 2,500 times in the Old Testament. Although a single noun is available, the plural form is nearly always used for God, and, in violation of grammatical rules, with few excep- tions singular verbs and pronouns are used with this plural noun. Why would this be?
The Shema, the oldest daily prayer in Judaism, declares, “Hear, O Israel; the Lord our God is one Lord” (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29). In the Hebrew language, it reads, “Jehovah our elohim [gods] is echad [one] Jehovah.” Echad signifies a unity of more than one. It is used in Genesis 2:24, where man and woman become one flesh; in Exodus 36:13, when the various parts “became one tabernacle”; in 2 Samuel 2:25, when many soldiers “became one troop,” and elsewhere.
