About this LessonWe know the New Testament has clear pictures of the Trinity as in the Baptism of Jesus, where in Matthew 3:16–17 it says, “When Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him, and behold, a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.’”
In this Benediction of Paul, he clearly speaks of the three persons of the Trinity: May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all (2 Corinthians 13:14).
And there are many other New Testament passages that do the same. But what about the Old Testament?
In this lesson, you will see how from the beginning the Old Testament talks about the Trinity
Many are familiar with Gen. 1:1“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” where the word “God” is in plural format.
Also with the passage: Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” Gen.1:26, NLT, where God is clearly a plurality of persons.
But what about The Shema, where it says, “God is ONE?”
You will have to watch the lesson to find out the answer, but it is fascinating. I also include an extended discussion of the pre-Incarnate appearances of Jesus as the Angel of the Lord.
