Wesley's Notes for Mark 12:29


12:29 The Lord our God is one Lord - This is the foundation of the first commandment, yea, of all the commandments. The Lord our God, the Lord, the God of all men, is one God, essentially, though three persons. From this unity of God it follows, that we owe all our love to him alone. #Deut 6:4|.


Discussion for Mark 12:29

  • There is no trinity. The word "Trinity " exists no where in the bible. There is only one God. St. Mark 12 verse 29 says it all. So best not to waste time finding any ancient artifacts to contradict this, the word of the Lord
  • Bethany for verse 29
    How can God be a Trinity then?
