Oxford University Professor Mark Edwards gives historical information which proves the Trinity belief did not come from Jesus or his followers, rather it came from church philosophy (church tradition) centuries after. The belief of the 3-self Trinity is a 3 in 1 concept which teaches God is tri-personal (Father, Son, Spirit). It’s obvious the Trinity belief was unheard of by Jesus and his disciples. It’s effectively church tradition in that it’s a philosophy that culminated in the late 4th century – a philosophy to try and make sense of the collection of books church fathers 200 years after Jesus began declaring to be “inspired”. In order to try and make sense of what appeared to be contradictory writings they came up with the Trinity belief through an evolution of thought which eventually culminated in the 3-self Trinity belief in the 4th century (NOT at the council of Nicea, it was after that although this council was part of the evolution process).
