Trinity


"A word not found in Scripture, but used to express the doctrine" of the unity of God as subsisting in three distinct Persons. "This word is derived from the Gr. trias, first used by" "Theophilus (A.D. 168-183), or from the Lat. trinitas, first used" "by Tertullian (A.D. 220), to express this doctrine. The" propositions involved in the doctrine are these: 1. That God is "one, and that there is but one God (Deut. 6:4; 1 Kings 8:60;" "Isa. 44:6; Mark 12:29, 32; John 10:30). 2. That the Father is a" "distinct divine Person (hypostasis, subsistentia, persona," "suppositum intellectuale), distinct from the Son and the Holy" "Spirit. 3. That Jesus Christ was truly God, and yet was a Person" distinct from the Father and the Holy Spirit. 4. That the Holy Spirit is also a distinct divine Person.
