Several scriptures are being presented in Genesis 18 and 19 that are claimed to present, or being speaking of, the trinity.
The first is Genesis 18:1-3:
(1) And Jehovah appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre. And he was sitting at the door of the tent in the heat of the day. And he lifted up his eyes and looked; and, behold, three men were standing by him. And he saw, and he ran to meet them from the entrance of the tent. And he bowed to the ground. And he said, My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, I beg You, do not leave from near Your servant. - (Genesis 18:1-3, Green's Literal)
It is claimed that there are three person who appear to Abraham, and that they are identified as being Jehovah (singular).
Jehovah, of course, may make appearances through as many of his angels as he wishes. There is nothing in these verses about Jehovah being three persons in one Supreme Being. The idea that there is something here about a triune God has to be imagined beyond what i…
Trinitarians often claim that trinitarians do not believe in a "three-headed trinity". While it may be true that most trinitarians would not think of the trinity in those terms, yet, in history, many trinitarian artists did depict the alleged triune God with three heads. I am providing some links below that confirm this:
(1) Abraham and the Trinity, (c.1270-80) inserted at the front of a fourteenth-century Psalter (English). It is claimed that this is a "Biblical" illustration, although the Bible itself never once presents the God of Abraham as being three persons. Indeed, the Bible only presents the God of Abraham as being one individual or person. -- Exodus 3:14,15; Deuteronomy 18:15-20; Acts 3:13-26.

(1) ELOHIM does not ALWAYS refer to a singular God. Nor does its plural usage mean persons or parts of one God, but rather it designates more than one God, that is, "gods", as in Genesis 31:30; 35:2; Exodus 12:12; 15:11; 18:11; 20:3,23; 22:28; 23:13,24,32,33; 32:1,4,8,23,31; 34:15,16,17; Psalm 82:6, and many, many, other scriptures.
(2) ELOHIM as applied to Jehovah (Yahweh) is used as a plural intensive, that is, with an emphatic singular meaning. Some call this the majestic plural, or emphatic plural, etc. Whatever the usage may be called, it still designates a singular, but intensified or magnified, meaning to a plural form of a word. The usage never designates more than one person or individual as combined in one being.
(3) There are no plural verbs or adjectives in Deuteronomy 6:4 that attend the word "ELOHIM", not unless one refers to the word "our…
