The Trinity in Hosea 13

Updated: Apr 12

In Hosea chapter one three (13), I noticed three things that seem to me to be irrefutable proof of the Trinity.


“But I am the Lord your God from the land of Egypt; you know no God but me, and besides me there is no savior.”

Hosea 13:4 ESV


Jews, Christians and Muslims all believe in a Messiah that will save them, but God says He is the only savior.

The Messiah must be God Himself.


“I shall ransom them from the power of Sheol; I shall redeem them from Death. O Death, where are your plagues? O Sheol, where is your sting? Compassion is hidden from my eyes.”

‭‭Hosea‬ ‭13‬:‭14‬ ‭ESV‬‬

We must atone for our sins by paying a ransom, also known as making a sacrifice. We offer our very first and very best to God.

In Hosea chapter one three, verse one three plus me (13:14), God says He will pay the ransom. Who or what is God offering or sacrificing to pay for our atonement? To Whom is He offering it?

Who or what could possibly be valuable enough to pay for all sins ever committed by all people? The offering would need to be of infinite value to atone for sinning against the infinite God.

Only God is infinitely valuable. God is paying the ransom to Himself. The offering is God Himself. Jesus Christ.


“Compassion is hidden from my eyes”

How could God possibly not see compassion? God IS compassion. There is only one example in scripture that makes sense, when God the Son could not see God the Father.

“And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭27‬:‭46‬ ‭ESV‬

These thoughts may not be new or unique to me. This is what jumped out at me as I was reading it. This might be my new go to chapter when I’m making a case for the Trinity!
