These words do not show up in the Bible. Where do the doctrines come from and what do they say?
Can these extra-Biblical doctrines be defended with the Bible?
the word Bible not found in the bible either! Do you still call the collection of 66 books that term?
John stated that God becalme flesh and "taberbacled' among us , so it does clearly state that God was here in human flesh!
paul called Jesus the "expressed visible image" of the invisible God...
Trinity was seen as a concept even in the OT, for god created the Universe, AND His Spirit brooded over the earth...
jesus called God His father, john ?paul/peter etc ALL stated jesus was/is Son of the father, and John expressly stated that he was God, as did peter and paul!
Peter/paul called the Spirit God also...
Both terms concept wise well proved in the Scriptures!
