Why Jesus Part 6 (The Trinity)


Published on

We are not talking one God among gods, or an alternative among various paths. To call people from among the Gentiles is to call them from other religious or worldly paths and to the obedience of faith in Jesus.

Why Jesus Part 6 (The Trinity)

  1. 1. Romans 1: 1-3 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God—the gospel He promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding His Son, Who as to His human nature was a descendent of David,
  2. 2. Romans 1: 4-5 and Who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by His resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Him and for His name’s sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith.
  3. 3. Romans 1: 6-7 And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ. To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be saints: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
  4. 4. Just because it doesn’t make SENSE to you, doesn’t make it UNTRUE God is UNIQUE, and there is only ONE God, and He will not give His GLORY to another. Yet, Jesus was WORSHIPPED as God.
  5. 5. The Trinity DISTINGUISHES Christianity and Jesus from any other religion. We cannot fully comprehend the Trinity, but we can show the Trinity is not CONTRADICTORY to one God Who is unique. Two dangers: losing the personal DIFFERENTIATION for the sake of one God, or losing the ONE God for the differentiation
  6. 6. The Old Testament points TOWARD the Trinity rather than AGAINST it. The Trinity is like a COMPOSITE unity where the various PERSONS, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, make up one ESSENCE of God. To call people from among the Gentiles is to call them from other RELIGIOUS or worldly paths and to the obedience of faith in Jesus.
