Bible Study Discussions with Gary Panell

Question: Where does the Bible talk about the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit?

Answer: Let me give you the short answer to your question first in case that is all you wanted. Then, after that we will look at the long detailed answer for those who want it. To begin with, this is the best passage I could show you:

"And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Notice that we are to baptize people in 'the name' (which is singular, meaning 'one name'), but then three names are given showing God is one in three.

The second best, quick answer, I can give you is to remind you that when Jesus the Son was baptized He was coming up out of the water when the Holy Spirit came down on Jesus like a dove. Then God the Father spoke from heaven. So all three persons of the Godhead were seen there together.

16 "When He had been baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting upon Him. 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (Matthew 3:16,17)

This is a wonderful question! To read an indepth answer go to the article titled, The Holy Trinity.
