Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2:7, Genesis 35:18, Matthew 10:28, 1 Samuel 1:15, Isaiah 26:9, 1 Thessalonians 5:23, Hebrews 4:12, John 3:5-8, 1 Corinthians 2:14

The Bible testifies right from the beginning that God is a Trinity – God the Father, Jesus – God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Yet even in these three aspects of His character, God is One. Thus we say God is “triune.” We also know that God created mankind in His own image and likeness. Thus we find that man too is a trinity – albeit an inferior trinity – of body, soul, and spirit. In coming to grips with the subject of death, we must understand that while all people are subject to bodily death, our souls are eternal.

Unfortunately, Dr. Strauss’ paper is out of print, but is available as a Microsoft Word document here. Unfortunately, that document is in an older MS-Word format. Furthermore, not everyone has access to MS-Word. I have therefore saved the downloaded document in a more modern version of MS-Word and also saved it as a PDF. Please feel free to download and use either or both of these documents in your own studies, but do please heed and honor its copyright statement.
