    John chs. 14-17 clearly (enough) express the 3-in-1 nature of God.

.

    Three verses, even standing alone, underline this:

.

   John 14:26

   John 15:26

   John 16:15¹

   A stubborn fact to some is that the word “trinity” is nowhere used in the Bible. And this was often troublesome to Jews, back then as well as today–and now especially to Muslims–because of fierce acceptance in a polytheistic world that God is “one.”

   Even the apostles seemed to struggle with this, especially with the declaration of the existence of the Spirit (which we always capitalize), “the Helper,” the “Spirit of God,” “Spirit of truth” or “Holy Spirit.”

   Without going into further detail, here are the 3 verses. (We will put references to the Holy Spirit in blue to help make things more clear. In all cases, Jesus is speaking.) But careful, of course, to examine the context:

(1)  “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your rembrance all that I said to you.”  –John 14:26.

(2)  “When the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, that is the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, He will bear will bear witness of Me…”  –John 15:26 “

(3)  “All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He² takes of Mine, and will disclose it to you.”  –John 16:15.
