A person would be hard pressed to find the trinity in the Bible. Yet, many denominations worship this doctrine. Jesus never taught it, his disciples didn't teach it. The Jews didn't worship a trinity god nor did the prophets of old. So if this doctrine is absent from the Bible where did it come from?

Indeed, the Jews do not teach a Trinity, but ask the Jews today and even anciently, if they consider the Spirit (ruach) of God and the Word (dabar) of God to be non-divine or divine.

That's a good start place because in the New Testament and early Christian writings the Spirit of God is the Paraclete or Holy Spirit, while the Word of God is clearly the Son of God, Jesus Christ.

The Trinity's fault is in its shortcomings, but it's on the right track, compared to Monarchianism (which says the Son and the Spirit are not divine).

Wikipedia has lots of information about the Trinity.

They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts" - William Shakespeare

Yes. There are many sources about the trinity, even different breeds about trinities. However, I found it rather odd that the doctrine is completely missing from the scriptures.

(ie) One trinity that is common in christendom is the claim that "three separate persons make up one god". Yet, scripture after scripture, doesn't have that phrase in the Bible. The most common scripture used to support this dogma is used at (John 1:1). But when I read it, the phrase "three separate persons make up one god" is completely absent.

So, no comment on what I wrote?

The term Godhead is in Scripture. Our salvation is made possible by the trinity / Godhead. We are to baptize in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ - the Son of God --came to this world as a baby -- He died on the cross for our sins , was buried and rose again on the 3rd day. The moment that a person accepts Jesus Christ as their personal Savior, the Holy Spirit indwells them -- He is the Comforter, and by Him, the Holy Spirit -our soul is kept secure until we are with Jesus Christ in eternity.

The Godhead / trinity is Assumed to exist.

That particular phrase Won't be found in Scripture. It's three equal entities that are in the Godhead. God the Father, Jesus Christ His Son, and the Holy Spirit.
