The Biblical Basis of the Doctrine of the Trinity, Part III: The Father Is God

III. The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is God


A. Explicit statements: John 5:18; 6:27; 17:1, 3; 20:17; 1 Cor. 8:6; 2 John 3; etc

B. The expression, “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ”: Rom. 15:6; 2 Cor. 1:3; Eph. 1:3; Col. 1:3; 1 Pet. 1:3; see also 2 Cor. 11:31; Eph. 1:17; Rev. 1:6

(Note: No attempt is made here to argue at length for this premise of the doctrine of the Trinity, since those who profess some form of Christian faith rarely, if ever, dispute it.)
