The Trinity in Creation

Bryan Murphy | December 31, 2013

The New Testament makes it very clear that the God of the Bible is one God in three distinct persons. It also directly states that the pre-Incarnate Word (or second member of the Trinity) directly participated in every act of creation. Likewise, this doctrine can be supported from the text of Genesis 1. While the use of the plural noun Elohim used throughout the Old Testament is inadequate to demonstrate it, the plural pronoun and plural predication used in Gen 1:26 does strongly suggest it—indeed demand it on the basis of NT revelation.
