The Trinity and Jesus

Is the Trinity a doctrine supportable by biblical text? How can we know if the Trinity is real or makes sense, or not?

What is Jesus' relationship to God if the Trinity is an inadequate Christological model? Is it possible to consider Jesus as less than God?

"Is it possible to consider

"Is it possible to consider Jesus as less than God?"

I would have to say simply NO, below are some of the verses that make me believe this way, there are more but I wanted to contribute a few, I am sure others will have more to share.

Hebrews 1:3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited

also this verse

colossians 1:19
19 For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him.

and this verse
have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;
7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!

and this verse

Titus 2
13 while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.

Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him for ever.
