According to the Trinity faith, this scripture is a Trinitarian formula.
Let's for a moment agree with them.
And there is nothing in this scripture or ANY saying all THREE are ONE GOD.
And if there are THREE GODS and NOT ONE, this would CONTRADICT the whole word of GOD, who always declared, from the BEGINNING to the end, He is GOD alone.
The Trinitarian formula also CONTRADICTS the simple fact that Christianity emerged from Judaism, and is a monotheistic religion.
So could this scripture that reads: baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, in Matthew 28:19, be genuine?
On my latest research, I decided to check out Matthew 28:19, where we read the Trinitarian formula “Father the son and Holy Spirit” to see if there is anymore evidence to prove if this is true, or false, or that this is another Trinitarian FORGERY.
But guess what? There is a complete copy that scholars believe was handed down from the original writing of Matthew Himself, now known as: Shem Tob’s (or Shem Tov) Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.
And the author Papias wrote around the year 100, confirming Shem Tob’s (or Shem Tov) Hebrew Gospel of Matthew.
Who was: Papias of Hierapolis?
Papias (Greek: Παπίας) was an Apostolic Father, Bishop of Hierapolis (modern Pamukkale, Turkey), and author who lived c. 60–130 AD. It was Papias who wrote the Exposition of the Sayings of the Lord (Greek: Λογίων Κυριακῶν Ἐξήγησις) in five books.
This work, which is lost apart from brief excerpts of Irenaeus of Lyons (c. 180) and Eusebius of Caesarea (c. 320), is an important early source on Christian oral tradition and especially on the origins of the canonical Gospels.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Many of the early church Fathers also made reference to this Hebrew Gospel of Matthew, again proving it indeed existed, taking this translation back before ANY other translation of Matthew’s Gospel, where we shockingly discover this Trinitarian formula is MISSING from Matthew 28:19, and instead reads:
Matt 28:19-20 "Go and teach them to carry out all the things which I have commanded you forever."
On top of these interesting facts, there are more Biblical facts, and these important facts, reveal that there is NOT a SINGLE Trinitarian formula that reads the same or anything like the phrase: “Father the son and Holy Spirit.
But how can we be sure that Matthew 28:19 is, in fact, another forgery?
Remember to follow the example of the Berean Jews, and to search the scriptures daily, as Jesus confirmed: We will find if we seek. Matthew 7:7.
With that in mind, when we search the scriptures, what do we find wrong with Matthew 28:19? Well, let’s have a look and see (the following are all from the English Standard Version).
As we clearly see, yet again, there is NOT a SINGLE Trinitarian formula that reads: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Even more evidence can be found in the fact that Saint Jerome had access to a copy of the original Hebrew of Matthew’s Gospel, and also did not include the Trinitarian formula.
So, once more we have some fishy business going on here. Why and who changed the scriptures by adding in: ‘of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’, which does seem to have been added in at a later date to promote the trinity doctrine.
