The Trinity in the Old Testament

The Trinity in the Old Testament

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is ONE LORD. (Deuteronomy 6:4)

“It is often used by Jews and Unitarians to deny the three persons of the Godhead. The Hebrew word ‘echod’ (one), however, excludes forever such a denial, for it means a compound unity. The Hebrew has another word which expresses exactly what Jews and Unitarians, who reject the three persons in the Godhead, believe. It is the word ‘yochid’; this has the meaning of a single one.”
Arno C. Gaebelein, The Annotated Bible: The Pentateuch (New York: Publication office “Our hope”, 1913), p. 397
