The Gospels’ Passages and the Trinity


Christians believe there is much evidence of the Trinity in the New Testament, which is much clearer than that mentioned in the Torah. They present passages such as: “And when Jesus was baptized, immediately he went up from the water, and behold, the heavens were opened to him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming to rest on him.And behold, a voice from heaven said, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.”(Matthew 3/16-17)



This passage contains the Father, the beloved Son, and the Spirit that descended in the shape of a dove. In another passage Paul said, The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”(Corinthians (2) 13/14).




Whoever reads Matthew’s passage attentively, will find three selves, different in names and acts. Each of them has a different self-being; one came out from the water after baptism, the second descended as a dove, and the third is in the sky saying, (this is my beloved son). How can one say, after all this, that they are only one being?




Moreover, Christians believe that Jesus is the Son. Here the passage indicates that the spirit is incarnated in Jesus (PBUH), and assures that in many places, (Luke 3/22, Matthew 12/18) while other passages indicate that the Father is incarnated in him. (John 17/21, 14/9-10). Then which divine hypostasis is incarnated in Jesus (PBUH)?



The Holy Bible does not mention the three hypostasis of the Trinity together, except in two passages: the passage of the three witnesses in John’s First Epistle, and the end of Matthew’s Gospel.
