The Holy Trinity
Jesus is not considered “God” in other religions. To them, He is a man, a prophet. The issue of the Holy Trinity also confounds the understanding of Jesus’ deity. The Holy Trinity of God is “three persons in one-God.” God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20).
The three parts are separate personalities. And yet together, they form one being – God. The Scriptures are full of references to the triune nature of God (Mathew 3:16-17, Luke 1:35, John 15:26). More than 60 NT verses mention the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the same verse. These members of the Godhead are co-existent and co-equal one in essence and yet three in person.
