“Every Trinitarian affirms the Shema” James White “The Shema” = Deuteronomy 6:4 – “hear o hear O Israel, the Lord our God, is one Lord.”
“The revelation of the doctrine of the Trinity takes place in the incarnation, ministry, death, burial, resurrection of Jesus Christ, His exaltation to the right hand of the Father, and the outpouring of the Holy Spirit”. . . The NT is the record of that revelation . . . ”
