This Bible study quotes exclusively from the King James Bible (1769 Edition).


This Bible study applies questioning based on biblical teaching which can be found in 2 Timothy 2:15-16, 1 Corinthians 2:13-14, Romans 1:22-23, Colossians 2:8 and Acts 17:29.


2 Timothy 2:15-16

“15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

16 But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness."

1 Corinthians 2:13-14

"13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.

14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

Romans 1:22-23

"22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things."

Colossians 2:8

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

Acts 17:29

“Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device.”


Vain imaginations, man's wisdom and philosophies are great challenges in the study of the Bible.

Therefore, in all Bible study, but with a particular emphasis when it comes to the things of the Spirit of God, it is necessary that we ask ourselves the following two questions:


Are we studying and rightly dividing the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15), or are we formulating profane and vain babblings which the Bible warns against and teaches not to do (2 Timothy 2:16)?

Note: Studying and rightly dividing the word of truth requires effort of the mind and the application of diligence and logic within the spiritual teaching of the Bible. This brings us to the second question.


Are we comparing spiritual things with spiritual (1 Corinthians 2:13-14), or are we adopting man's wisdom and philosophies to describe the things of the Spirit of God which the Bible warns against and teaches not to do (1 Corinthians 2:13-14, Romans 1:22-23, Colossians 2:8, Acts 17:29)?

Note: When we strain our mind and apply diligence and logic in the study of the Bible we need to remain in the spiritual teaching of the Bible, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, and not slide into man's wisdom and philosophy.


Applying these questions in the Bible study of the Godhead versus the Trinity we find the following.


The word “Trinity” is never used in the Bible, but the word “Godhead” is (Acts 17:29, Romans 1:20, Colossians 2:9).


All formulations of the Trinity, when enquired for the meaning of the base word "person", require the use of the base word "person" and unless the existence of a person is explicitly denied, every use of the base word "person" implies a person. Please look up what a base word, its inflections and derivatives are. Examples of inflections and derivatives of the base word "person" include but are not limited to the words "person", "persons", "personal", "personality", "personify" and "personification".


The following is the listing of all Bible verses where the base word "person" appears, including all its inflections and derivatives:

Genesis 14:21, Genesis 36:6, Genesis 39:6, Exodus 12:48, Exodus 16:16, Leviticus 19:15, Leviticus 27:2, Numbers 5:6, Numbers 19:17, Numbers 19:18, Numbers 19:19, Numbers 19:22, Numbers 31:19, Numbers 31:28, Numbers 31:30, Numbers 31:35, Numbers 31:40, Numbers 31:46, Numbers 35:11, Numbers 35:15, Numbers 35:30, Deuteronomy 1:17, Deuteronomy 10:17, Deuteronomy 10:22, Deuteronomy 15:22, Deuteronomy 16:19, Deuteronomy 27:25, Deuteronomy 28:50, Joshua 20:3, Joshua 20:9, Judges 9:2, Judges 9:4, Judges 9:5, Judges 9:18, Judges 20:39, 1 Samuel 9:2, 1 Samuel 9:22, 1 Samuel 16:18, 1 Samuel 22:18, 1 Samuel 22:22, 1 Samuel 25:35, 2 Samuel 4:11, 2 Samuel 14:14, 2 Samuel 17:11, 2 Kings 10:6, 2 Kings 10:7, 2 Chronicles 19:7, Job 13:8, Job 13:10, Job 22:29, Job 32:21, Job 34:19, Psalms 15:4, Psalms 26:4, Psalms 49:10, Psalms 82:2, Psalms 101:4, Psalms 105:37, Proverbs 6:12, Proverbs 12:11, Proverbs 18:5, Proverbs 24:8, Proverbs 24:23, Proverbs 28:17, Proverbs 28:19, Proverbs 28:21, Isaiah 32:5, Isaiah 32:6, Jeremiah 43:6, Jeremiah 52:25, Jeremiah 52:29, Jeremiah 52:30, Lamentations 4:16, Ezekiel 16:5, Ezekiel 17:17, Ezekiel 27:13, Ezekiel 33:6, Ezekiel 44:25, Daniel 11:21, Jonah 4:11, Zephaniah 3:4, Malachi 1:8, Malachi 1:9, Matthew 22:16, Matthew 27:24, Mark 12:14, Luke 15:7, Luke 20:21, Acts 10:34, Acts 17:17, Romans 2:11, 1 Corinthians 5:13, 2 Corinthians 1:11, 2 Corinthians 2:10, Galatians 2:6, Ephesians 5:5, Ephesians 6:9, Colossians 3:25, 1 Timothy 1:10, Hebrews 1:3, Hebrews 12:16, James 2:1, James 2:9, 1 Peter 1:17, 2 Peter 2:5, 2 Peter 3:11, Jude 1:16


In every instance, the Bible uses the base word "person", either as the singular word "person" to describe a single person or as the plural word "persons" to describe multiple persons, while each person is described as:

- always one single person with one single body that is visible to the human eye

- never a person without a body

- never a person with a body that is not visible to the human eye

- never multiple persons with the same single body

- never one single person with multiple bodies


In the Bible, the Trinity's way of using the base word "person" does not occur.


It is important at this point to remember again the two questions that this Bible study applies to remain within the spiritual teaching of the Bible (comparing spiritual things with spiritual), particularly when the Bible speaks of the things of the Spirit of God, particularly the Godhead including the Father and the Spirit. And it is important to remember that the Bible warns against and teaches not to adopt a conception of the Godhead that is based on man's wisdom and philosophies (1 Corinthians 2:13-14, Romans 1:22-23, Colossians 2:8, Acts 17:29).


Even the inner circle around Jesus Christ struggled with precisely this conception of the Godhead that is based on man's wisdom and philosophy (John 14:8-9). This is also the case with Philip, who asks Jesus Christ to show them the Father (John 14:8). Because Philip sees Jesus Christ's body, his request shows that he believes the Father to be a different Person than Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ's answer to Philip shows that Philip does not know Jesus Christ because he requests Jesus Christ, Who is bodily visible to Philip, to show them the Father (John 14:9). But Jesus Christ's answer also shows that He expects a Christian who follows Him to know Him (John 14:9).


The Bible describes that a human being consists of spirit, soul and body as Paul is addressing the Thessalonians, and the Thessalonians are human beings (1 Thessalonians 5:23).


In the Bible a human is also described as a person.


Jesus Christ is described as the express image of God's Person (Hebrews 1:3)

Paul speaks of the person of Christ (2 Corinthians 2:10)

Pilate describes Jesus as a Person (Matthew 27:24)


Jesus Christ is born in the flesh and is conceived by the Holy Ghost in the womb of Mary (Matthew 1:20). No ovum or sperm is involved in the conception of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is a Man (has a body in the likeness of men) but He is not a human (Philippians 2:7).

Jesus Christ has always existed as a Man. He had to be born in the flesh to fulfill the law of the Old Testament. Jesus Christ came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it (Matthew 5:17).


Jesus Christ is God.

God created humans in his own image after his likeness (Genesis 1:26-27).
