How should we think and talk about the Trinity? Does it make any different in our lives, practically speaking? In today’s Seven Minute Seminary, Dr. Jerome Van Kuiken explains the leading error in today’s church when talking about the Trinity, and points us to a more faithful way of understanding the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The Trinity in the Bible:
Genesis 1:1-2; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19; John 1; 10:30; 14:16-17; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 1:21-22; 13:14; Ephesians 4:4-6; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15-17; 2:9; 1 Peter 1:1-2. Many other passages treat the divinity of the Son and Holy Spirit.
