Calling Christians Worldwide to Return to the Creed of Jesus

Explaining Matthew 28.19  [56:27]
by Steve Katsaras rated at 1.9 (8 votes so far)

This text has widely come to be known as the Trinitarian baptismal formula - baptism into the threefold name. This is perhaps the strongest text found in the Bible that supposedly proves that God is a plurality of persons, spoken directly by Jesus himself! Is this assertion true? Is Jesus advocating 3 divine persons within the one essence of God by introducing this formula? The following is a study of the text using a range of methods to highlight the weight of evidence for/against each argument.

Commentary on Ephesians 1.22 and 23
by John Schoenheit, Mark Graeser, and John Lynn [1 page]
rated at 1 (out of 5 votes)

There are some Trinitarians who assert that the last phrase of verse 23 proves the Trinity. Not so, for there is no mention of any Trinitarian concept such as “three-in-one.” This verse clearly teaches that God was the one who “appointed” Christ to be over the Church. Surely if Christ were a co-equal part of God, he needed no such appointment, because by nature he would already have been over the Church.
