Session 6 – The Trinity: Part 2

The Trinity – The Triune Godhead – Part 2

Topic:      We talked about it last week, but let’s take another look at one of the most perplexing things – our God is one and yet He is three—the Triune Godhead.

Verses to Consider:     Genesis 1:1 &1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19-20; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5

              – The Trinity (Triunity) of God  http://bible.org/article/trinity-triunity-god

Key Questions:

  • Theologians often describe God as one essence and three persons.  Can you explain that?  

  • Is this “trinity concept” a logical contradiction and therefore is not believable?

  • This is from the Los Altos Grace Brethren Church in Statement of Faith:
    We believe:  THE ONE TRUE GOD:  existing eternally as three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Luke 3:22; Matthew 29:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14).

Do you agree? Why or why not?

  • Who do you pray to: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit?
