Popular Verses Used to Support the Trinity
While the Doctrine of the Trinity is nowhere clearly stated in Scripture, there are verses which have been used to support some of its principles.
Each of these "proof-texts" can be explained using sound methods of biblical interpretation. The Bible is very clear on who God and Jesus are, but the power of tradition has trained many modern Bible-students to read past the intended meaning in order to locate Trinitarian principles. The misunderstanding of biblical figures of speech outside of their native Jewish context has therefore skewed the meaning of several passages. Yet we find that these popular verses can be easily understood once context, culture and language are considered.
