15. "The trinity of persons within the unity of nature is defined in terms of `person' and `nature' which are G[reek] philosophical terms; actually the terms do not appear in the Bible. The trinitarian definitions arose as the result of long controversies in which these terms and others such as `essence' and `substance' were erroneously applied to God by some theologians." - Dictionary of the Bible (Macmillan Publishing Co., New York, 1965), p. 899.
