How did the Christian world come to believe that one God is three different individuals? Jesus and the Bible itself had established that only one is God – the Father himself (John 17:3). Joel Hemphill tells us how post-biblical gentile Christians moved away from the absolute monotheism of Jesus into a philosophical theory they came to call the Trinity.
