Words like Trinity, Triune God and phrases like Jesus is God, God the Son, and Jesus Christ as very God and very man represent a new language not found in the Biblical texts. Peter and the Apostolic Church of Bible times would not recognize these words and phrases. Peter, the apostle, was complimented by Jesus for understanding who Jesus really was. He told him, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. He did not say, Jesus is God. He is God s Son. Christians over the years have defended the primacy of Biblical scripture, yet they have allowed the authority of church tradition to supersede Biblical authority, falsely believing that tradition was identical to the Biblical witness.

The author questions details in the historical formation of the Christian doctrine of the Trinity influenced too much and enforced by the powerful political pressures of Christian emperors of the Roman empire and by the religious pressures of church leaders. These church leaders were intent on controlling theology and maintaining a powerful church and state alliance that allowed for centuries of shameful religious intolerance and persecution in the name of Christ.GERALD H.
