There is a divine Trinity, which is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

It is very obvious in the Word that there is a divine Trinity, which is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Take the following passages for example:

The angel Gabriel said to Mary, “The Holy Spirit will descent upon you and the power of the Highest will cover you; therefore the Holy one that is born from you will be called the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35)

Here three are named: the Highest (who is God the Father), the Holy Spirit, and the Son of God.

When Jesus was baptized, behold the heaven opened and John saw the Holy Spirit coming down like a dove upon him; and a voice from heaven said “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:16-17; Mark 1:10-11; John 1:32)

The Trinity is even more obvious from the Lord’s words to his disciples:

Go out and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name if the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

The Trinity is also obvious from these words in John:

There are three who testify in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit. (1 John John 5:7)

Further evidence besides these passages is that the Lord prayed to his Father and spoke about him and with him; and he said that he was going to send and had sent the Holy Spirit. Furthermore, in their letters the apostles frequently mention the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These sources clearly show that there is a divine Trinity, which is the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
