    This 2011 book is one of a series of four addressing criticisms by Norman Geisler and Ron Rhodes. This book addresses various points of truth concerning the Divine Trinity, including:

    • the use of the word persons to describe the Three of the Godhead;
    • the coinherence and co-working of the Father, the Son, and the Spirit;
    • whether Isaiah 9:6 prophesies that the “Son given to us” is the “Eternal Father”; and
    • whether the Apostle Paul said the Lord Jesus Christ is the Spirit in 2 Corinthians 3:17.

    Second Corinthians 3:17 says plainly, “And the Lord is the Spirit.” Many respected scholars recognize that “the Lord” in this verse refers to our Lord Jesus Christ. However, Norman Geisler and Ron Rhodes argue otherwise. This article shows their error. (See also Scholars and Bible Teachers Who Affirm That the Lord is the Spirit).

    01/01/2010 1 Corinthians 15:45, 2 Corinthians 3:17, Christ and the Spirit, identification, Norman Geisler, Ron Rhodes, Trinity, Triune God

    The oneness of the Triune God can be seen in three categories of Scriptures, which this article calls interpenetration, identification, and interchangeable Scriptures.

    10/08/1977 2 Corinthians 3:17, Bible, Christ and the Spirit, Isaiah 9:6, Santa Ana Register, the Son and the Father, Twofoldness of Divine Truth, Walter Martin

    In this 1977 booklet, Witness Lee directly rebuts the accusation that his teaching is modalistic. He examines key verses such as Isaiah 9:6, 1 Corinthians 15:45, and 2 Corinthians 3:17, showing that some who twist these verses to avoid their obvious meaning end up in the heresy of tritheism. Witness Lee concludes by showing that the biblical revelation of the Triune God is not for doctrinal formulations but for His people to experience of the reality of God.
