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

- 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?
