Does the Bible teach the Trinity?
The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Psalms 110:1 Many Trinitarians point to this scripture when discussing the Trinity. Capital L-O-R-D is generally understood as being the Father, and the “Lord” is usually understood as being Jesus or the Christ (See also Mathew 22:43-45.) Here’s the Father talking with Christ-a clear representation of two of the persons of the Godhead.
But let’s see what Peter by inspiration of the Holy Ghost said, immediately after the Holy Ghost fell on the day of Pentecost. » 34 † For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ. ~Act 2:34-36
Jesus Was made both LORD and Christ: one Person. He was not made a second person of the Trinity, but the one Person containing the fullness of the Godhead bodily. Peter closes with that famous command of Acts 2:38 to be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ fulfilling the Lord’s command in Mathew 28:19 to be baptised in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
The Bible is understood line upon line, here a little and there a little. It does NOT teach the Trinity as the councils of man and man’s private revelation have supposed. The Bible teaches a very clear revelation of the Godhead that the church councils have failed to express or represent properly. Church Councils are not God’s determination of orthodoxy. But the Word of God as expounded by the apostles and prophets, and this Word is the absolute we must look to.
