If the word "Trinity" is not in the Bible, where did it come from?
Although not in the Bible, this word was used for the
first time by Theophilus of Antioch (181A.D. See Theophilus'
work called "Ad Autolycum" Chapter 15 of Book 2) expressing
a great Biblical truth. The word “trinity” means that there
are three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)
within the being and activity of God. The three distinct
persons of the Godhead are mentioned in the Great
Commission: Matt 28:19 “Therefore go and make disciples of
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of
the Son and of the Holy Spirit”.
The trinity represents:
This is in response to the question about the Trinity; Mark 1:10-11, as Jesus was being baptized by John and came out of the water, heaven was torn open and the Spirit descended on Him like a dove. Then a voice came from heaven, "You are my son, whom I love, with you, I am well pleased. The Spirit descended on Jesus, the Son of God. Three person, God, The Son, and the Spirit. Romans 5:5-8; God poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us. Christ died for the ungodly. Three, God, Holy Spirit, Christ.
John 14:1-17; Jesus tells about His Father and how His Father will give us another Counselor, the Spirit of Truth. Three persons; God, the Father, Jesus, and the Spirit of Truth.
