The Meaning of Trinity

I have been waiting for to own an earrings with trinity design (^_^) (nan dito na yung image ng earrings)

Surprisingly, trinity wasn’t mention in any statements of the Bible, why?
Because it was the symbolism created that means: The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost/Spirit in other words it was mention as “the father, the son and the holy ghost” not the word “trinity”. Trinity is three circles formation joint together it says that The Father can be the Son or the holy Ghost, but the holy Ghost can not be the Father nor the Son can be the Father. For illustration here is the picture meaning of trinity, isis[image source: wikipedia]

Here are my research:

The word "Trinity" came from Latin, Trinitas began to be used around the year 200. This Latin word means "three, a triad", from the abstract noun form the adjective trinus (three each, threefold, triple), like the word unitas is the abstract noun formed from unus (one).

The Greek term used for the Christian Trinity, "Τριάς" ("Trias", gen. "Triados") means "a set of three" or "the number three",[6] and has given the English word triad. The word "trinity" itself is not found in the Christian Bible, any more than is the word "monotheism", but Christians in general believe that what is meant by these two words is taught in the Bible.

The doctrine of the Trinity is the result of continuous exploration of the Bible by the church, argued in debate and treatises. The concept was expressed in early writings from the beginning of the second century forward.

The first recorded use of the word "Trinity" in Christian theology was in about AD 180 by Theophilus of Antioch who used the corresponding word in Greek (Τριάς) to refer to "the Trinity, of God, and His Word, and His wisdom", of which he considered the first three days of creation to be types.[8][9] He did not apply the word to the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Neither of the words "Trinity" nor "Triunity" appear in the Old Testament or New Testament. Various passages from both have been cited as supporting this doctrine, while other passages are cited as opposing it.

The Old Testament refers to God's Word, his Spirit, and Wisdom. These have been interpreted as adumbrations of the doctrine of the Trinity, as have been also narratives such as the appearance of the three men to Abraham in Genesis 18. Some Church Fathers believed that a knowledge of the mystery was granted to the Prophets and saints of the Old Dispensation, and they identified the divine messenger of Genesis 16:7, 21:17, 31:11, Exodus 3:2, and Wisdom of the sapiential books with the Son, and "the spirit of the Lord" with the Holy Spirit. However, it is generally agreed that it would go beyond the intention and spirit of the Old Testament to correlate these notions directly with later Trinitarian doctrine.

The New Testament does not use the word "Τριάς" (Trinity) nor explicitly teach it, but provided the material on which the doctrine of the Trinity is based. It required reflection by the earliest Christians on the coming of Jesus Christ and of what they believed to be the presence and power of God among them, which they called the Holy Spirit; and it associated the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in such passages as the Great Commission: "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" (Matthew 28:19) and Paul the Apostle"s blessing: "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all" (2 Corinthians 13:14), while at the same time not contradicting the Jewish Shema Yisrael: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord" (Deuteronomy 6:4).

Now the I’m looking forward to have the trinity pendant. Ahihihi (^_^)
