The Certainty of God’s Witness

6 This is He who came by water and blood Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one.  (John 5:6-7John 5:6-7

 The following notes are great discussion points regarding this passage of scripture.  It speaks to who God is, the Trinity, ONE God, not three!  For a detailed description of the Trinity, please check out my eBook poste called: “What is the Trinity, Who am I, and Why Do I Have to be Born Again?” (Select it from the eBooks section on this site)

So often, we, as Christians, have had a difficult time explaining who we are and who God is in relation to His creation.  Our inability to explain the Triune nature of our God has led many to believe we worship 3 Gods.  This is one criticism Islam has of Christianity, that they are “monotheistic” and Christians are “polytheistic” because we worship 3 Gods, not one, like them.  It is hard to blame them for this criticism when one needs only ask 10 people who call themselves “Christians” to explain how God can be “3 Persons” and still be “One God”.

Please use these notes when you are studying this key passage in John 5.
