16 But the eleven disciples went into Galilee to the mountain which Jesus had appointed them.17 And when they saw him, they did homage to him: but some doubted. 18 And Jesus coming up spoke to them, saying, All power has been given me in heaven and upon earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them to the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; 20 teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have enjoined you. And behold, I am with you all the days, until the completion of the age.


Baptism into the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

The words found at Matthew 28:19, 'in the name of the Father, the Son, and [God's] Holy Breath,' are not found in the ancient Shem Tob Hebrew manuscript, so they may be spurious (words that were added to the Bible). And this raises the question: Did Jesus really command that we be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit?

Many churches use a variation of the baptismal formula found at Matthew 28:19 which reads, 'Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit.' This has been called the Trinity Formula, since it contains the three-person Godhead.

At present we don't have any complete manuscripts of Matthew prior to the 4th Century, and all existing manuscripts written thereafter contain this phrase. However, there is evidence that this reading is a later corruption of the original text.

The early Church historian Eusebius appears to quote from a different manuscript than any we presently have. Eighteen times between the years 300 and 336-C.E. he cited Matthew 28:19, 20 as: 'Go ye and make disciples of all the nations in my name, teaching them to observe all things, whatsoever I commanded you.'

It is interesting that the traditional Trinitarian reading of Matthew 28:19 does not appear in Eusebius' writings until after the Council of Nicaea, wherein the Trinity began to formally held as official doctrine. So, evidence strongly indicates that this is a spurious scripture inserted by later Trinitarians, in the same vein as 1 John 5:7-8.

This finding may prove to cut both ways for some, for while it breaks apart the only mention of the Trinity trio, it does seem to prove what many Trinitarians have said all along, that baptisms should only be done in the name of Jesus.
