How the Hebrew language reveals the trinity – part 2

This is a follow up to what I wrote a year ago:-

Has anyone told you that the Trinity isn’t true?  There’s a fair amount of people with this kind of idea in the theological mixed bag of the internet.   Unfortunately, this confuses people and does much damage and I’ve had to counsel people whose walk with Lord has been derailed by this sort of stuff.

Genesis 1:26
Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

trinity in Genesis1To flatten this constantly repeated lie, head to biblehub.com. This is a brilliant web site for thorough drilling down into the scriptures looking at multiple translations and the original Hebrew and Greek.

Look at multiple versions, what do you see?   You can do a Control F on your computer as I have shown, see every single translation is the same old and new.  But what about the original Hebrew?

וַיֹּ֣אמֶר אֱלֹהִ֔ים נַֽעֲשֶׂ֥ה אָדָ֛ם בְּצַלְמֵ֖נוּ כִּדְמוּתֵ֑נוּ וְיִרְדּוּ֩ בִדְגַ֨ת הַיָּ֜ם וּבְעֹ֣וף הַשָּׁמַ֗יִם וּבַבְּהֵמָה֙ וּבְכָל־הָאָ֔רֶץ וּבְכָל־הָרֶ֖מֶשׂ הָֽרֹמֵ֥שׂ עַל־הָאָֽרֶץ׃

My Hebrew isn’t good enough to translate all of this.   You can look up the Hebrew here.

This particular word is familiar to Jewish people.  One of my Israeli Messianic Jewish friends in Jerusalem showed me this whilst I was learning Hebrew in her kitchen;

Elohim / אֱלֹהִ֔ים

Anyone who knows Hebrew will know that if you add ים / im on the end of almost any word, it makes it a plural, just like adding S on an English word.  

For true followers of Christ, the trinity is 100% genuine concept.   It is not a word found the bible, but it is a tool or a measuring item to show the Godhead.  Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one but also three separate parts.
