I recently started a study called The One True God by Paul Washer and the first chapter of the study is God is One and deals with the topic of God is a Trinity. Going through this study, I found some Scriptures that further support the fact that Jesus is God, which is a particular area of conflict when dealing with cults such as Mormonism or Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The first verse I wanted to share with you is Matthew 28:19:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost…”
Notice here that the word “name” is singular yet it refers to the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It does not use the word “names” because the three persons of the Godhead are all One. That is awesome!
Also, 2 Cor 13:14 states:
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.”
The literary structure here denotes absolute equality. Notice that the Son is here mentioned even before the Father. If the Father were above the Son as the JWs or Mormons claim, this would be blasphemous. However, this shows that they are co-equal with the Father.
Other Scriptures which denote the same sort of literary structure showing equality between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are:
