    The concept of a “Triune” God, or “God in three persons” i.e. Three individual persons (beings) making one God, is a foreign concept to the Hebrews then, and now. To the Hebrews, according to the scriptures, God is singular in person. If you were to even bring this idea to any village, town, city of the Hebrews in O.T times you would have been thrown out and stoned to death. There is nothing in the Hebrew scriptures that even intimate that God is multiple in persons. In fact God plainly declares it in Deuteronomy 6:4, “Shma Israel, Adonoi Elohenu, Adonoi Echod” “Hear, O Israel, The LORD our God, The LORD is ‘ONE'” One meaning singular as in “singular being, or person.” Malachi 3:6, “For I am the LORD, I change not” God is not going to change His nature at anytime for any one. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, Hebrews 13:8. So what’s true in the Old Testament, is true in the New Testament.
    Other scriptures that God is “ONE,” singular in person:
    Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Isaiah 44:6-8; 45:2-6, 21-23; 48:8,9; Malachi 2:10; Mark 12:28-32; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; Ephesians 4:5,6; I Timothy 2:5; James 2:19; Revelation 4:2,3
    These are just a few. Jesus openly declares that “God is a Spirit.” John 4:24 God also is Holy (Holy means to be without sin). 2+2=4, God is a Holy Spirit. Jesus also told His disciples “for a spirit hath not flesh and bones” Luke 24:39. This means as we rightfully divide the Word of Truth, that God has no physical body. He is not limited as we are. He is not confined as we are. By being Spirit makes Him “Omnipresent.” This means He is everywhere at the same time “who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” David wrote,
    “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
    If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.
    If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;”
    Psalm 139 7-9
    You cannot hide from God. He is everywhere at the same time. And He sees everything we do, He hears everything we say, and He knows what is in the heart and the mind.
    God is a Spirit Scriptures:
    Genesis 1:2; 1 Kings 8:27; Psalm 139: 7-12; Jerimiah 23:23,24; John 4:23,24: Acts 7:48, 17:24-28
    This is God’s physical nature. Singular in Person, Spirit in Being. And this is in line what the Hebrews knew about and believed about. Now, God, being a Spirit had a redemption plan already in place at the beginning of creation. He knew when He created Adam and Eve that they would disobey His command and fall into sin. “Declaring the end from the beginning” Isaiah 46:10; 48:5. When Adam and Eve knew they had sinned, they made aprons of fig leaves to cover themselves (man’s inadequate ability hide, or cover his own sin). God gave them the promise of a redeemer that would come, made of a woman. Genesis 3:14,15. It was then that God reveals to us what that redemption price would be. “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21. God had to slay the innocent to clothe man. Blood had to be shed for the sin of disobedience. From the garden to Abel, the sacrifice of an innocent animal for sin was established. Adam passed this information to his children. Noah continued this ritual Genesis 8:20,21. As did Abraham Genesis 22:13. In Egypt, the Israelites during the Passover, God reveals again the plan of salvation, again an innocent lamb was slain, and it’s blood placed on the doorposts and lintel of the house. A foreshadowing of what was to come. In the wilderness the sacrificial offering for sin, under the Law of Moses God reveals the necessity of innocent blood that is to be shed for the sins of man.
    From the beginning God reveals that it is the shedding of blood that will bring remission of sins. “And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission” Hebrews 9:22. And the blood of bulls and goats could not remit man of his sins. “For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.” Hebrews 10:4. God’s plan to save man from his sins was to shed His own blood, an act of love for His creation, for man’s sins. But being a Spirit He could not do directly. So, in an act of creation, He created a body, inwhich He would place His Spirit(Himself). That Body is the one we call, “the man Christ Jesus,” or the “Son of God,” or “the Son of Man.” How do we know this is God indwelling a human body? Isaiah 7:14, “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (Immanuel means God [singular in person, Spirit in Being] with us).” Isaiah goes on to clarify this in Chapter 9 verse 6, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace”
    So, this son that is to be born. This son that is to be given for the redemption of man, the one who would offer himself to shed his own blood would be The Mighty God (singular in person, Spirit in Being) who is the Everlasting Father. God, in an act of Creation, created a man child in the womb of a virgin girl in which he would inhabit. John 1:1.14. Because God is Holy, sin cannot be in His presence. God could not use any person born on this earth since Adam’s sin, because Adam’s sin passed on to everyone born thereafter. With Jesus His body was not fashioned by intercourse through the relations of man and woman. He was born without that sin, and sin nature that we are born with. God cannot dwell in an unclean temple, but He could dwell in the man Christ Jesus because Jesus was an act of creation. “In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
    Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”
    Colossians 1:14,15
    “For in him (Jesus) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Colossians 2:9
    It was the body, the man Christ Jesus that hungered, got thirsty, prayed, cried out, wept, but the very Father God of all creation dwelt in that body. That is why Jesus said, “I AM,” “They that have seen me hath seen the Father,” And in speaking of the Comforter (Holy Spirit, or God Himself single in person, Spirit in Being), ” And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
    Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” John 14:16,17 Jesus says right after that, “I will not leave you comfortless: [I will come to you.]” John 14:18. In this discourse He tells His disciples that He Is The Father, and that He Is The Holy Spirit. (God is a Holy Spirit). He is saying, “INSIDE THIS BODY OF MINE IS GOD!” “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;..” John 14:9
    This falls in line with the Hebrew thought and understanding of God in the Old Testament.

    • The Hebrews did not receive revelation in one single instance. The process was gradual. In the Old Testament we see this. In fact, the Hebrews were henotheists. The idea of a single God was not mainstream. Your inference is incorrect. You are taking the Bible verses out of context.
