Session 8 - The Doctrine of the Trinity: Biblical Defense
Is the doctrine of the Trinity taught in the Old Testament? Is Christ God? What about when Christ said that the Father is greater than He is? What about when Christ is called the first born of all creation? Upon completion of this session, the student will have built a biblical foundation for the doctrine of the Trinity looking at the teachings of both the Old and New Testaments. The student will also learn a strong defense for the deity of Christ, recognizing that Christ was either a madman or the Lord of the universe. We will also struggle through some passages that seem to present problems to the doctrine of the Trinity and Christ’s deity. In short, the student should leave with a solid defense for the doctrine of the Trinity.
