What Is The Biblical Teaching About The Trinity?

“Trinity” is not a Biblical word, but it means “three.”
The Bible is very mysterious about that.
The Bible has a lot to say about God, but we cannot understand it all. God insists there is one God, and yet, He clearly reveals Himself as three distinct persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

God says of the Lord Jesus in Colossians 2:9:
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

Jesus says of Himself in John 10:30:
I and my Father are one.

He says in John 14:9:
Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?

We cannot reconcile and understand that language. Many theologians and Bible teachers have attempted to give the analogy of ice, water, and steam, which is all H2O, but the fact is that when steam is steam, it is not ice. So, the analogies always break down. We cannot make a good analogy, and we should not even try because we are talking about His infinite majesty who is greater than our minds can comprehend.
