When I taught this series to my home group, I gave this chart to the members as a reference.
There is only one God
- “I am the LORD, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God,” (Isaiah 45:5).
- “Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last, And there is no God besides Me,” (Isaiah 44:6).
- “I am the Lord, and there is no other; besides Me there is no God,” (Isaiah 55:5).

Therefore, the doctrine of the Trinity is arrived at by looking at the whole of scripture, not in a single verse. It is the doctrine that there is only one God, not three, and that the one God exists in three persons: Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. An analogy would be time. Time is past, present, and future. But, there are not three times, only one. (https://carm.org/trinity)
