There are several theological concepts that aren’t explicitly described or labeled in the Bible. The triune nature of God is not described with the word “trinity,” for example. How can we accept notions that aren’t explicitly labeled? How can we be sure such ideas are Biblical? Detective Jimmy Wallace (J. Warner’s son) tackles these questions as part of his Incarnate Investigation Video Series.

For more information about the reliability of the New Testament gospels and the case for Christianity, please read Cold-Case Christianity: A Homicide Detective Investigates the Claims of the Gospels. This book teaches readers ten principles of cold-case investigations and applies these strategies to investigate the claims of the gospel authors. The book is accompanied by an eight-session Cold-Case Christianity DVD Set (and Participant’s Guide) to help individuals or small groups examine the evidence and make the case.

    Well, the word Bible aint in the Bible, nor is OT or NT, nor is dinosaur, nor is rapture, and we believe those as well and they’re ample textual support for them.

    Not only is the word “Trinity” not found in the Bible, it is also not taught in it. The Creator is not three persons, the Bible is very clear about that. Isaiah 45: 5-6. A poly god is however a pagan concept.

    Trinity is not in the Bible. God is one.Deut.6:4,Deut.32:39,Ecc.4:8,Is.44:6,Is.44:8,Rom.3:30 That came from Roman Catholic Church. If not mistaken 325 A D.God is the father. God is the Holy Spirit.God overshadowed a woman,within the woman a child with the same spirit. So now you can’t say Mary birth God. Because you putting a age on God. The Messiah was 12. Not God. The Messiah started His ministry age 30.Not God. God is eternal.God was in Christ Jesus and the flesh took on the name of God.That flesh had to grow.Not God.Luke 2:52. Jesus had to increase in wisdom & stature.Not God. He’s the only wise God. God don’t increase in stature. He fulfilled the heaven and earth.It says Father,Son,Holy Ghost.Father is Spirit those two has nature of spirit.The son nature was flesh & blood. Flesh & blood was tempoary. Ecc.17:30.Father,Holy Ghosts is the same spirit,Father manifested in the son.They are titles.God don’t have 3 different personalities. Trinity is not in the Bible. Roman Catholic Church adopted pagan tradition with Christian faith.But some Christian rebeled
