Trinity - Bible Evidence for the Trinity

by Ernst Adolph

yes, the subject "Trinity" is not an easy one and I believed for some years like the Jehovah's Witnesses that Jesus was a created being and not God Himself until I came across something that would contradict Scripture. And as Jehovah's Witnesses themselves admit, there are no contradictions in Holy Scripture!

Psalm 23, for example, contains the New World translation of the Holy Scriptures: Psalms 23:1 - A melody of David - 1 Jehovah is my shepherd. I shall not want.

Compare this passage with John 10, where Jesus Christ says of himself: 11 I am the excellent shepherd; the excellent shepherd gives his soul to the sheep.

My question to the Jehovah's Witnesses is, can there be two shepherds?

Jehovah God is said in Isaiah 44:6:

This is what Jehovah has spoken, the King of Israel and his repurchaser, Jehovah of hosts: "I am the first, and I am the last, and besides me there is no God."

And in Revelation 22:13 Jesus says the following about Himself: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."

My question to the Jehovah's Witnesses is: Can Jesus say for himself that he is the A and the O if he is a created being of Jehovah? Or is he the Jehovah of the Old Testament? Does Jesus not have several names in the Scriptures, see Is 9:5. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us, and dominion rests on his shoulder; and his name is called: Wonderful counselor, strong God, father of eternity, prince of peace? Or does Jesus say something that he would not be entitled to, e.g. like Satan, that he wants to be like God?

I will list some Bible passages that Jehovah's Witnesses should give serious thought to.
